Who we are

Digital Catapult is the UK’s leading advanced digital technology innovation Centre, driving early adoption of technologies to make UK businesses more competitive and productive to grow the country’s economy.

We connect large established companies, startup and scaleup businesses and researchers to discover new ways to address big challenges in the manufacturing and creative industries. Through this collaboration businesses are supported to develop the right technologies to solve problems, increase productivity and open up new markets faster.

With our deep understanding of sectors and expertise in technology programmes spread across immersive (VR, AR & MR), artificial intelligence (AI & ML) and future networks (5G and Things Connected), our strategy is to be the catalyst that drives job creation and greater private investment to ultimately grow the UK economy and as such, deliver on the aims of the Government’s Industrial Strategy.
