Catapults are transforming the UK’s capability for innovation in specific industry sectors. The nine centres of the Catapult network see 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.
SME’s are strategically important to the innovation expected over the coming years. The Catapults are an invaluable resource to SME’s in a wide range of markets and one of the ways in which we reach out to engage with SME’s is through our series of cross-Catapult events across the UK. These events showcase our capabilities, expertise and successes, and allow us to promote the benefits of working with the Catapults:
