Academic Engagement Programme

Academia delivers innovation, knowledge and thought leadership, but it must evolve its connections with the commercial world even further if it is to have social and economic impact and deliver better outcomes for the UK. By continuing to meet the changing needs of both academia and industry, and partnering with both, our strategic approach is designed to bring innovations to market faster, as well as understand and unlock new opportunities for exploitation.

We aspire to increase the likelihood of new ideas and innovations from academia reaching the market as finished products and services, which will maximise the economic impact of research currently being undertaken in the UK.

The Connected Places Catapult is at the global forefront of place-making technology. We provide expertise in, and access to, complex issues that help research organisations and universities expand their agenda. Our international industry, government and academic networks mean that we can disseminate research far and wide progressing it from theory to implementation.
