WELCOME TO THE CATAPULT NETWORK

The Catapult Network supports businesses in transforming great ideas into valuable products and services. We are a network of world-leading technology and innovation centres established by Innovate UK. We deliver impact across the UK economy, enabling businesses to thrive in global markets.

A Catapult is where the application of research is accelerated, where new technologies are further developed, scaled up and realised. 

Catapults provide businesses with access to their expertise and facilities, enabling them to test, demonstrate and improve their ideas. By fostering collaborations between industry, government, research organisations, academia and many others, Catapults are helping to create the best environments for innovation. Catapults work with small, medium and large businesses, to understand the challenges they face and support them in the development of solutions that will help improve their business performance.
