UK Centres of Excellence

High Value Manufacturing Catapult and the wider Catapult Network

Catapult Network

The Catapult Network brings together nine leading technology and innovation centres where new technologies are further developed, scaled up and realised. Established by Innovate UK, part of UK Research and Innovation (UKRI), these 'Catapults' provide businesses with access to their expertise and facilities, enabling them to test, demonstrate and improve their ideas. By fostering collaborations between industry, government, research organisations, academia and many others, Catapults are helping to create the best environments for innovation, working with thousands of innovative businesses across a wide range of sectors, such as manufacturing, space, health, digital, energy, transport, telecoms, the urban environment and many others. 

High Value Manufacturing Catapult

The High Value Manufacturing Catapult (HVM Catapult) is one of the nine Catapults with the role to grow business and and the contribution of the manufacturing sector to the UK economy. The National Composites Centre is one of seven research centres across the UK that form the HVM Catapult, helping to turn great ideas into reality by providing access to world-class research and development facilities and expertise that would otherwise be out of reach for many businesses in the UK.
