Knowledge Transfer Secondments (KTS) funds are available to support activities that facilitate the movement of skilled people into and out of Imperial College, and that enable EPSRC funding-generated research results to be taken further towards application by users.

Inward secondments are available for user organisation staff to work on a specific research project at Imperial College that is or was funded by EPSRC at the College, to build on knowledge generated with EPSRC funding.

Outward secondments are available for Imperial researchers previously or currently engaged on EPSRC funding, to enable research results to be taken further towards application by users. The outward secondment can be to any organisation that can benefit from the results of the research.
