Catapults are not-for-profit, independent physical centres which connect businesses with the UK’s research and academic communities.
Catapult centres are there for all businesses – large and small – looking to undertake late stage research and development and commercialise traditional academic research.
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.
These are the centres:
- Cell and Gene Therapy
- Compound Semiconductor Applications
- Energy Systems
- Future Cities
- High Value Manufacturing (a network of another seven centres)
- Medicines Discovery
- Offshore Renewable Energy
- Satellite Applications
- Transport Systems.
