The government has agreed to continue funding Digital Catapult for a further five years.
The company runs digital facilities and programmes that bring startups, scaleups and corporates together in leading edge innovation. Its major programmes focus on early adoption of AI, Future Network and Immersive Technologies, as well as more experimental work in Distributed Ledger Technologies.
Chair of Digital Catapult, Andy Green, said, “I am delighted for our people and partners that the Digital Catapult’s crucial role in developing advanced digital technology has been recognised. The team have launched Europe’s first commercial VR Volumetric Capture Studio; supported UK AI companies in developing cutting edge technologies through the Machine Intelligence Garage; established the first non-academic 5G testbed in Brighton; and deployed a low powered digital network across the UK.”
