R+D collaboration accelerator

Alex Green

How can established charities form new collaborations, connect with cutting edge research and tap into the tech talent of the UK? What if there was a Digital Catapult for charities?

Digital Placement Programme

Alex Green

What if there was a better way for us to learn together through skills swaps and short-term secondments?
