Regional engagement

Engaging with regional clusters and SMEs to accelerate the identification, development and commercialisation of innovative technology in offshore renewable energy is a key objective for ORE Catapult.

We are  already working in collaboration with regional organisations involved in innovation and economic development in offshore renewable energy, and are looking to establish new strategic partnerships, investing resources to focus on SME-led innovation and to drive regional delivery.

This regional engagement strategy builds on direct discussions with Local Enterprise Partnerships, Economic Development bodies and Devolved Administrations across the UK over a number of months, and has been designed based on input from the regions.

An Invitation for Expressions of Interest to host an ORE Catapult Regional Coordinator or Regional Programme is open to local enterprise partnerships, innovation hubs, universities, local authorities, or regional business organisations, and seeks:

  • responses based around larger, multi-agency regional partnerships
  • a focus on linkages to regional offshore renewable energy SME supply chains
  • compelling offers to share resource requirements with us

ORE Catapult is working with Nautilus Associates to support our regional engagement plan.
