The world is changing at a hectic rate, as are many of the challenges we face. Increasing resource demands, decreasing space, an increasing and ageing population
– finding solutions to ensure the health and stability of our communities and the environment into the future will be a challenge.
Connected Places Catapult works to find and create solutions to that challenge.
We believe that connection is what drives innovation in place-making: connected citizens, communities, public and private stakeholders; connected infrastructures
and systems; connected data and information; connected languages and standards. By embedding intelligent connection at every level of our social infrastructure we
can make places that work holistically for all of us and the world we live in.
The exponential evolution of digital technology is delivering the tools needed to create connected places fit not just for the future wellbeing of people and the environment – but also for innovative infrastructure and entrepreneurial economies.
Connected Places Catapult operates at the intersection between public and private sectors and between local government and transport authorities. We bring together every corner of the place-making market to help researchers, innovators and investors to improve productivity and create new commercial opportunities.
