Digital-Catapult-Centre-Badge-ShowcaseFor the next Digital Catapult Showcase we’re looking to show the best and latest innovations across digital technology, and highlight our SMEs successes to the digital community. We’re putting out an Open Call to SMEs working with Digital Catapult to showcase at our London Centre.

If you’ve worked with us either through our local centres, with our clusters and communities partners, one of our projects, our case studies or you are part of our Contributor Programme and have a product, app, installation or new business that you want to showcase, we want to hear from you.

We are looking for the most innovative solutions that work across our range of technology layers. Your showcase should ideally be one of the following:

  1. Data-driven – personal data, privacy, trust, cyber-security and blockchain
  2. Connected – Internet of Things, 5G, low-powered wide area networks
