  • 1. Connected Digital Economy Catapult An over overview of the Technology Strategy Board’s planning for the Connected Digital Economy Catapult Webinar September 2012Catapult is a Technology Strategy Board programme
  • 2. The  Vision  To  make  the  UK  the  best  place  in  the  world  to  develop  and  launch  digitally-­‐enabled  systems,  services  and  products  to  unlock  the  digital  economy’s  massive  economic  poten7al  and  support  its  rapid  commercialisa7on  by  UK  companies.  The  Catapult  will  achieve  this  by  •  being  highly  networked,  collabora7ve  and  business  led  •  developing  world-­‐class  R&D&I  exper7se  and  facili7es  •  in  a  single  physical  centre  forcing  mul7-­‐disciplinarity  and  above  all,  by  bringing  together  large  and  small  businesses,  research  organisa7ons,  and  the  public  sector  in  ways  that  haven’t  happened  before.  
  • 3. Why  a  centre  is  required   The  consensus  community  feedback  is  that     The  Catapult  must  be:   •  A  physical  centre  of  world-­‐class  Research  &  Innova7on   •  Fully  engaged  with  users  &  developers   •  A  catalyst  for  innova7on  by  coordina7ng  demand  and  supply   The  Catapult  must  help  the  community  by:   •  Helping  define  industry-­‐wide  strategic  innova7on  needs   •  Coordina7ng  innova7on  demand  and  supply  (cross-­‐sectorally)   •  Steering  joint  development  of  industry-­‐wide  plaRorms   •  Giving  the  community  access  to  shared  exper7se  and  facili7es   •  Showcasing  UK  leading-­‐edge  innova7ons  to  global  markets  
  • 4. Main  market  opportuni7es  addressed  In-­‐depth  consulta7on  has  iden7fied  3  areas  where  the  community  expects  the  Catapult  to  add  most  value.  Media  and  Content  Suppor7ng  the  development  of  leading-­‐edge  plaRorms  and  applica7ons  with  SMEs  and  large  companies  Digital  adop7on  across  all  services  sectors  Transferring  exper7se  and  models  from  sectors  with  high  digital  penetra7on  (eg  media)  to  newer  sectors  (eg  e-­‐health  and  educa7on)  and  developing  solu7ons  to  sector-­‐level  problems  Merging  of  physical  and  virtual  worlds  Suppor7ng  the  development  of  “plaRorm-­‐level”  demonstrators-­‐pilots  and  giving  test  beds  to  SMEs  and  large  companies  to  develop  applica7ons  
  • 5. Core  R&D  and  Innova7on  capabili7es  Catapult  world-­‐class  exper7se  in  these  areas  will  help  its  communi7es  explore  and  develop  massive  opportuni7es  in  each  of  the  market  areas  iden7fied.  “Big  Data”  There  is  limited  ability  to  iden7fy,  access,  interrogate,  manipulate  and  re-­‐use  the  vast  data  resources  available  via  the  internet  User  centricity  There  is  weak  understanding  of  user  needs/expecta7ons  which  are  typically  not  embedded  into  all  elements  of  system  design  inhibi7ng  take-­‐up  &  usability  Trusted  internet  Poor  user  iden7fica7on  and  authen7ca7on,  privacy,  trust  and  security  on  the  internet  is  inhibi7ng  its  adop7on  in  a  wide  range  of  markets  and  applica7ons  Infrastructure  and  mobile  The  nature  of  emerging  internet  infrastructure  is  poorly  understood  yet  its  impact  upon  business  models  and  markets  will  be  fundamental  and  extreme  
  • 6. Catapult  long  term  capabili7es   Major  markets  and  sectors     Ecosystem  build  and  support        Pilot,  demo’  &  test  beds      “Big  data”   Strategic    applied  R&D      User  centricity  &  experience    Trusted  internet   Closeness  to  market    Infrastructure  &  mobile      CDE  Catapult  areas  of  experAseWhere  available,  strategic  partners  with  relevant  facili7es  and  capabili7es  will  be  asked  to  make  them  open  to  others  to  access.  Where  not  available,  the  Catapult  will  develop  these  assets  to  support  UK  innova7on.  
  • 7. Open  access  culture  The  Catapult  has  3  categories  of  “space”.   Catapult  R&D  teams   CollaboraBon  space  2nd  In-­‐house  R&D  space,   supported  facili7es  and     collabora7ons   e.g.  Catapult  1st  Catapult  front  office  plus   front  office   IP  Advisors   Investor  clubs   R&D  grant   finders   SME  advisors/networks  G  “Public”  space  for   exhibi7ons,  teaching,  etc   MeeBng   Raised  lecture  theatre   crea7ng  SME  awareness   rooms   Exhibi7on  space   Videowalls   and  crea7ng  new  “supply   chains”  and  communi7es   “Flat”  teaching  &   Recep%on   exhibiBon  space  The  alloca7on  of  space  to  be  determined  by  Catapult    priori7es  &  some  of  these  facili7es  will  be  delivered  by  partners  
  • 8. Applica7on  of  exper7se   R&D  partnerships  and        projects  building  core   CDE  Catapult            dis7nc7ve  capabili7es   Collabora7ng  on  sector        specific  applica7ons   Rest  of   Suppor7ng     the  World        commercialisa7on              in  the  community   Other  Catapults   CDE  Catapult  partners,  networks,  SMEs  …  
  • 9. Connected  Digital  Economy  Catapult   Opening  in  2013  and  configured  to:   ü     operate  as  a  not-­‐for-­‐profit  independent  company   ü     become  a  world-­‐class  centre  of  applied  R&D   ü  support  the  journey  “research”            “applica7on”     ü     collaborate  widely  and  openly   ü     support  innova7on  &  business  in  many  “sectors”   ü  build  communi7es  within  and  between  sectors     ü     provide  test-­‐beds,  exper7se  and  networks  to  SMEs   ü    help  UK  be  the  place  to  innovate  
  • 10. Conclusion   The  Catapult  will  have  massive  economic  and  social   impact  on  the  UK  by  allowing  its  companies  to  fully   exploit  the  opportuni7es  which  increased   “digitalisa7on”  is  bringing  to  almost  every  sector  of  the   economy.     This  view  is  reinforced  by  the  very  significant  buy-­‐in   from  large  companies  and  SMEs  from  all  relevant   sectors  and  from  universi7es  across  the  UK  who  hope   to  collaborate  and  coordinate  with  the  Catapult.
