KT-Box: Improving the competitiveness of UK service providers through applying academic research
'Improving the competitiveness of UK service providers through applying academic research' is the final report from the Knowledge-Transfer Box (KT-Box) programme. The research reported was developed by six university partners, working on ten major EPRSC research projects aimed at enhancing the impact of academic research to create and improve complex services.
The practical tools developed by the programme embody research knowledge in software or workshop processes, enabling users to apply them with little or no input from the research team. In supporting the use of these tools across many sectors, KTBox demonstrates how high-quality academic research can be applied well beyond the application originally envisaged.
