Connected Places Catapult, the UK’s accelerator for cities, transport, and place leadership, has today announced the formation of a new Affiliates Network, designed to strengthen the Catapult’s reach and impact in key innovation ecosystems.
The Affiliates Network will be comprised of professionals from across business, government, and academia. Individuals within the Network will be identified as Associate Directors, Ambassadors or Global Fellows.
Associate Directors will work with the Catapult on a regular basis to provide support on strategy development, identify new opportunities for commercial or CR&D work, and contribute to thought leadership content.
Ambassadors will provide strategic advisory input and introductions, as well as to provide a steer for strategic opportunities to maximise the impact of the Catapult’s initiatives.
Global Fellows will focus on utilising their international connections to raise the profile of the Catapult’s work in priority international markets.
