Creating global markets working in partnership with UK Businesses

Our global programme eases the entry of UK business into emerging innovation markets around the world.

Repeatable, proven, 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.

City innovation twinning
Creates jobs in both geographies, global access for participating organisaitons, shared socioeconomic prosperity and lasting R&I collaborations focussed on solving city challenges.
Net zero typology profiling
Strengthens understanding of a cities’ net zero related challenges and opportunities. This provides valuable insights which allows us to match capability to needs and assess which cities would be a best fit for UK expertise on net zero.
Challenges, open calls, pilots

We connect UK and in country SMEs to form joint ventures. UK SMEs get their first opportunity in a new market and a partner for scaling, and host country SMEs get a UK partner to more easily enter the UK market which means inward investment.

We work with large businesses both in the UK and abroad to enable large scale demos that both UK and in country partner SMEs can help deliver. In some cases, these are a natural progression from our city challenges, open call and pilots.
City strategy & roadmaps
Global Programme roadmaps help take a place from Point A to Point B by providing a plan to get there and a pipeline of UK Businesses that can deliver the roadmap. We recently completed a pathway to Mobility as a Service in Klang Valley, Malaysia.
Digital twins / Bim
The next phase for UKs BIM International programme.

If you have a great idea, innovative product or service which you believe could improve the way people connect and travel in the cities around the world, we would love to hear from you –

“We partnered up with Connected Places Catapult to virtually deliver our British Embassy funded project on Net Zero Urban Innovation Challenges in the Pacific Alliance and the Latin American Region.

Since development of the concept to final delivery, CPC was an incredibly responsive and well managed, securing resources and agendas across different teams in 3+ time zones.

I am delighted to have collaborated with them to successfully deliver all activities, and to have engaged with key stakeholders in the region to increase the outreach of our project”
