Catapult Network

7 Centres of Excellence

The National Composites Centre is one of seven research centres across the UK that form the High Value Manufacturing Catapult.

Established by Innovate UK, the UK Government's innovation agency, Catapults bridge the gap between business and academia, turning great ideas into commercial reality by providing access to world class research and development facilities, and expertise that could otherwise be out of reach for many businesses in the UK.
