Celebrating 10 Years of Transformative Impact

In the latest Annual Engagement and Impact report, Digital Catapult shares highlights from the past year. This is a milestone edition as we proudly celebrate our 10-year anniversary. In 2023, we reflect on our journey—expanding from a handful of individuals in 2013 to nearly 300 professionals across London, Belfast, Gateshead, and Bristol today. Digital Catapult’s commitment to “levelling up” technology adoption has seen the establishment of regional hubs, contributing significantly to local, national, and international initiatives.

Driving Innovation Across Industries

Our work over the past year continues to drive digital adoption across the UK economy from telecommunications to manufacturing. In the telecoms sector, our SONIC Labs programme is garnering international recognition for its work to accelerate 5G diversification. In manufacturing, the Digital Supply Chain Hub is ensuring the UK’s supply chains are more sustainable and resilient through digitisation.

Nurturing Creativity and Sustainability

Digital Catapult continues to champion the creative industries, where our engagement and support have catalysed innovation. Our network of Advanced Media Production research studios underscores a commitment to pushing boundaries, catalysing skills development, reducing carbon emissions and fostering regional growth.
