Our Vision

The Connected Places Catapult is driven by the vision that connection is what drives innovation in placemaking: connected citizens, communities, public and private stakeholders; connected infrastructures and systems; connected data and information; connected languages and standards.

The exponential evolution of digital technology – from smart to IoT – is delivering the tools to create these truly and comprehensively connected places fit for the future wellbeing of people, the environment, as well as infrastructure and economies.

It is our role at the Connected Places Catapult to help bring all the actors to the table, and to help them discover the opportunities and urgencies that together we can collectively manifest for the good of ourselves, those around us, and all those on to whom we will pass the future.

Our Global Projects

In the last five years alone we have worked on 25 projects (and counting) in cities worldwide – most recently the £2.52M Urban Links Africa programme funded by the Global Challenges Research Fund to work with six innovation-based city markets across Kenya and South Africa. Working with multiple HMG departments and global institutions we open the door to the Catapult Network on the global stage.

We operate a platform for delivery of Unique Markets Offers, Global Thought Leadership Positioning and Routes to Market for UK Plc. You can explore our work on the map below:
