What is RTTP?

International professional recognition for university business collaboration and knowledge exchange practitioners

Are you an experienced KE professional?

RTTP is the international standard for professional competence & experience in university business collaboration, knowledge exchange and commercialisation.

RTTP status tells employers, colleagues and business partners that:

  • you work effectively and creatively to add significant value leading to business outcomes
  • you have demonstrated competence, integrity, vision, versatility and perseverance
  • you have undertaken relevant training courses and/or gained qualifications that enable you to perform well and helped you to build a rich network

Do you want to develop your career in KE?

Candidate RTTP is a new designation that allows entrants to the profession to signal that they have committed to a pathway of training and development leading to the award of full RTTP status. It indicates to employers that they aspire to meet the highest standards.

  • develop a Career Aspiration Plan (supported by their Head of Office).
