New business opportunities for ISTC members

The Technology Strategy Board have just released their 2013-14 Delivery Plan, the first ‘full-speed ahead’ year of the 2011-15 National Strategy for Business Innovation.

Of particular interest to ISTC members will be the launch + initiatives of the 7 ‘catapults’ – industrial clusters comprised of an academic institution/s + industrial infrastructure + government programmes & funding. Each catapult will drive national initiatives, while being focused in one lead city, as judged most propitious :

– High Value Manufacturing, seven partner centres around the UK (admin : Swindon)

– Cell Therapy, Guy’s Hospital London

– Offshore Renewable Energy, Glasgow

– Satellite Applications, Harwell

– Connected Digital Economy, London

– Future Cities, London

– Transport Systems, to be announced.

Every catapult, and their constituent parties, many of them new entities, will be needing document & media origination, management and maintenance.

If you are not already involved, a good starting point is :
