Hosted by the University of the West of Scotland, this 2-day conference will be the first in person National Associates’ conference since 2019 (due to covid restrictions) and will provide an opportunity for Associates to network, learn, be inspired and, most importantly come together!
The National KTP Associates’ Conference is an annual UK wide event hosted by a different university each year. Open to all KTP Associates, the 2022 conference takes place across two days, on Wednesday 8 and Thursday 9 June 2022.
Hosted by the UWS KTP Centre and based at our Paisley campus in the West of Scotland, the conference agenda has been developed based on community survey feedback from current KTP Associates across the UK. Although an in person event, we plan on making use of emerging and enabling technology to maximise networking opportunities before, during and after the event and are finalising our own conference venue in the metaverse in support of this. This also provides a venue for virtual poster competitions and project showcasing and ties into one of the conference themes - Monetising the Metaverse. That said, the number one request from the community was for an in-person event with lots of networking opportunities, closely followed by inspiring stories and masterclasses spanning KTP project delivery, career planning and personal development, all delivered by KE professionals, sector leaders and current / former KTP associates. Four breakout sessions will augment a number of keynotes and panel discussions.
Day one ends with an evening dinner and traditional Scottish Ceilidh at the local 4 star Glynhill Hotel. Day two is a half day event ending with lunch to help facilitate return journeys for delegates.
The conference fee covers attendance at the conference for both Wednesday and Thursday, catering over the two days, dinner and ceilidh on Wednesday evening.
Should you wish to arrange accommodation, please note this is not included in the conference fee. We have rates agreed at the Glynhill hotel for £84 BB per night, or in our Halls of residence at £38 room only per night.
Please note if you wish to book more than one delegate place, then you should book these as seperate delegate transactions.
