Knowledge Transfer Partnerships (KTPs) are projects that are developed between third level educational institutions such as universities or colleges and companies through which these institutions share and develop knowledge and assist industry in business development. The KTP process provides businesses with the opportunity to improve their competitiveness and productivity through the better use of knowledge and technology. The KTP process also permits the increase in business relevance of knowledge based research and teaching for the educational institutions involved. This paper looks at the potential of KTPs between academia and companies in the AEC sector and how they could achieve a range of objectives in the development of theoretical and practical educational materials for BIM curriculum
