Our seven centres offer many ways to help smaller business; the tricky part can be knowing which of the seven centres to get in touch with. By contacting the HVM Catapult central team at firstname.lastname@example.org we can direct you to the right centre for your needs.
By providing a no-obligation introductory meeting and talking companies through their requirements and the possible technology solutions, both the centre and the company can assess scope for future collaboration.
We don’t have strict criteria to determine who is eligible for our help, but the companies best suited to our support will be:
Want to work on projects that require new manufacturing solutions that are not (yet) generally available
Have the potential to generate jobs and growth in your business and beyond
Have a well developed concept or prototype that proves the principles involved in the solution
Have the technical/business resources including both time and money to commit to a project
Our seven centres can help smaller businesses in many ways, including: early-stage development, access to equipment, toolkits, collaborative R&D with a consortium and more. These activities are aimed at SMEs that want to improve productivity, reduce costs, develop new products or processes and de-risk the use of technology.
