The Catapult centres are a network of world-leading centres designed to transform the UK’s capability for innovation in specific areas and help drive future economic growth.
They are a series of physical centres where the very best of the UK’s businesses, scientists and engineers work side by side on late-stage research and development – transforming high potential ideas into new products and services to generate economic growth.
Catapults are not-for-profit, independent physical centres which connect businesses with the UK’s research and academic communities.
Each Catapult centre specialises in a different area of technology, but all offer a space with the facilities and expertise to enable businesses and researchers to collaboratively solve key problems and develop new products and services on a commercial scale.
Whether a business is in need of a new manufacturing process, a fresh approach to digital rights protection or a new way of balancing energy demands in a future city environment, Catapults will be able to help them.
