Regional Centres Advisory Board: New Members


Closing Date



We are seeking new members, (from both the space and non-space sector) to join our Regional Centres Advisory Board.

The role of RCAB is to advise and support the evaluation of the progress of the Regional Centres of Excellence. The primary role of the RCAB is a forum to provide periodic guidance and expert advice on the direction and focus of the Centres of Excellence overall programme. The RCAB will advise on challenges, opportunities, technology roadmaps and capabilities that can be built upon by the Centres and work to identify new regional growth opportunities for the Catapult.

The RCAB will also discuss the progress of the individual Centres of Excellence, against the scope of their business cases and associated KPI’s.

Our Regional Centres of Excellence support work with local communities to achieve this aim. They create focal points of our activity linking the science base with large industry and SMEs around the UK, to enable the development of applications and solutions, as well as to engage the wider end user market. The Centres of Excellence act as representatives and ambassadors for the Catapult in their local region. We currently have five exciting Centres of Excellence.

  • Scottish Centre of Excellence in Satellite Applications
  • North East Satellite Applications Centre of Excellence
  • East Midlands Satellite Applications Centre of Excellence
  • South Coast Centre of Excellence in Satellite Applications
