Our global programme eases the entry of UK business into emerging innovation markets around the world.
Cities are complex places to do business, and some cities are more complex than others. Every place has its own unique set of challenges and opportunities. A personality you might say. And each place is on its own journey to where it wants to be.
The Connected Places Catapult knows the needs of business and places. We know how innovation and technology is shaping the places of tomorrow, and the things that place leaders need to be doing now to prepare for the future.
The support that we provide to place-leaders around the world is intelligence-led, and our distinctive insights come from our unique position in the innovation market as the UK’s global centre of excellence on urban innovation.
On the demand side we help cities and transport authorities to become better informed buyers in the market. And on the supply side we help businesses to test, scale and commercialise new innovations in cities.
We don’t push a particular solution. We focus on what works locally. We’re practical.
