Regional Centres of Excellence Competition Call

Closing Date:


Opportunity Overview:

We are pleased to announce a second call for Centres of Excellence to expand our regional engagement.  The opportunity to submit applications is open until 5pm on Wednesday January 13th 2016.

The overall aim of the initiative is to establish a Catapult regional presence across the UK to support growth of the Satellite Applications sector.  This will be achieved through support to eligible organisations that are involved in innovating through leading-edge satellite applications research and development. It is intended that these organisations will collaborate with business partners to alleviate relevant market failures.

This Centres Call builds upon our existing three regional Centres of Excellence, namely Scottish Centre of Excellence in Satellite Applications, North East Satellite Applications Centre of Excellence and East Midlands Satellite Applications Centre of Excellence (EMBRACE).

Our Centres of Excellence have helped us to:

  • Identify key areas of current or potential satellite applications research strength, either current or potential;
  • Ensure the key areas are linked to local industry and user markets to foster new collaborations; and
  • Identify and bridge gaps in capability that need to be strengthened to enable growth in the market sector.
