The High Value Manufacturing (HVM) Catapult is a key feature of the UK’s manufacturing and innovation landscape with full government support and cross party endorsement. We work with a variety of parties and government departments in a number of ways.
We speak from a position of knowledge and understanding of UK advanced manufacturing and we use our expertise to help shape UK policy. We speak at events, we contribute to consultations and we meet key stakeholders to help develop and disseminate an understanding of the importance of high value manufacturing to the UK economy and the role of the HVM Catapult in supporting the sector.
We agree our performance targets and Key Performance Indicators with Innovate UK, who provide our core funding. To date, we have consistently met or exceeded our key performance targets.
We work with colleagues at Innovate UK, the Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy and HM Treasury in particular on matters relating to our budget and funding structures.
