Catapult centres

Catapult centres are organisations set up by Innovate UK (previously the Technology Strategy Board) in the United Kingdom to promote research and development through business-led collaboration between scientists, engineers and market opportunities.



Current centres:

  • Cell & Gene Therapy – based at Guy's Hospital, London
  • Digital Catapult – based in Kings Cross, London
  • Future Cities – based in Clerkenwell, London
  • High Value Manufacturing – seven Technology and Innovation centres working with companies of all sizes to bridge the gap in – and accelerate the activity between – technology concept and commercialisation
  • Including: The National Composites Centre – based in Bristol
  • Offshore Renewable Energy – wind, wave and tidal power - based in Glasgow and Blyth, Northumberland.
  • Satellite Applications – based at Harwell Science and Innovation Campus, Oxfordshire
  • Transport Systems – based in Milton Keynes
  • Energy Systems – based in Birmingham
  • Precision Medicine – based in Cambridge
  • A further centre will be established in 2016:

  • Compound Semiconductor Applications – based in Wales
  • Funding

    Each Catapult centre is expected to raise funds equally from three sources: business-funded R&D contracts; collaborative applied R&D projects from UK and Europe (H2020), funded jointly by the public and private sectors, also won competitively; and core UK public funding.
