We are one of nine Catapults, a network of world-leading organisations established by Innovate UK, the UK Government’s innovation agency. Catapults are designed to transform the UK's capability for innovation in specific areas and help drive future economic growth.
Catapults bring together the best of the UK’s businesses, scientists and engineers to work side by side on late-stage research and development – transforming high potential ideas into new products and services to generate economic growth.
Hundreds of thousands of businesses in the UK are hungry for growth and capable of bringing brilliant new products and services to market. However only a few have all the resources, expertise, equipment or contacts they need to develop their ideas into new products and services.
Catapults focus on meeting the needs of these growth-hungry UK companies through connecting business and research and turning commercial ideas into a reality. By doing this, Catapults are de-risking innovation, accelerating the pace of business development, creating sustainable growth and developing the UK’s skill and knowledge base.
Catapults work collaboratively on a not-for-profit model and are always interested to hear from businesses – large or small – looking to scale products or services.
