The industries we focus on

Advanced digital technology only grows the economy if it is applied. We focus on the two sectors where we can create the most value: manufacturing and the creative industries. We work with researchers and small innovative companies to foster innovation and speed up the development of solutions that meet key challenges in these industries, whilst increasing adoption of advanced digital technologies amongst large corporates.

We are also exploring sectors such as professional services and health due to their growing interest in the application of AI and immersive technologies.

Creative Industries

An early adopter of digital technology, the creative sector has been at the forefront of business model disruption. Digital Catapult is helping this sector to create new markets using advanced digital technology such as blockchain, smart contracts, virtual, augmented and mixed reality systems.
