Working with Catapults: Guidance for Government Departments
Understanding what Catapults are and also the benefits of working with them to deliver government priorities.
This guidance aims to assist government departments in better understanding what Catapults are as well as the benefits of working with them to deliver government priorities. It also provides some detail on potential routes and best practice for working with Catapults.
In April 2021, we published the Catapult Network Review. It outlined a set of recommendations intended to ensure the network continues to deliver vital support to UK innovation, sectors, and industry. This included a recommendation to provide best practice guidance on how government departments may contract and engage with Catapults, which this guidance aims to address.
