UTS launched the Key Technology Partnerships (KTP) strategy in 2010 with the aim of building enduring, broad-based international engagement and strategic, high-quality research links with overseas partner universities.
The KTP program supports UTS researchers to engage internationally, contributing to enhancing the quality and impact of UTS research, and creating global social benefit.
UTS currently has 17 University-level KTPs with leading universities in Greater China, India, Europe, and the Americas. In addition, there are 2 Faculty-level KTPs with the Faculty of Engineering and Information Technology.
These partnerships provide a platform to enable complementarity of expertise, expand international networks, produce academic papers, recruit high quality PhD students, and gain access to international research funding and industry projects in other countries.
