Catapults, funded by Innovate UK, drive UK economic growth by helping innovative businesses turn ideas into reality, clearly demonstrated by new economic analysis.

Each of the UKs nine Catapults are funded by Innovate UK to drive innovation and commercialisation at the interface between universities and business. These Catapults fuel economic growth in the UK by enabling innovative businesses to turn great ideas into reality.

New evidence, published today, demonstrates the significant long-term value that Catapults bring to our UK economy.

Established by Innovate UK in 2011, Catapults are physical centres with a unique combination of cutting-edge R&D facilities and world class technical expertise.

There are nine Catapults, working in over fifty locations, in every region and nation of the UK:

These Catapults include hubs, laboratories, testbeds, factories, and offices, each powered by experts who bring innovators together, to prove and adopt breakthrough products, services, and technologies. They work across the boundary between universities and business and are particularly focused on late-stage R&D, helping innovative businesses get their high potential ideas to market.
