Digital Catapult: – The Blockchain: Change Everything Forever.
We’ve all heard about the Blockchain and being serious about Bitcoin all of us really want to understand it. So when we saw Digital Catapult promoting a video, The Blockchain: Change everything forever, we decided to investigate by attending a Digital Catapult event in London.
What is Digital Catapult?
A Catapult is a technology and innovation centre where the best of the UK’s businesses, scientists and engineers can work side by side on research and development, transforming ideas into new products and services to generate economic growth.
Catapults add an important new dimension to complement existing research and development programmes established by Innovate UK.
All catapults use the power of people and organisations working closely together to unlock opportunity, reduce innovating risk and speed new products and services towards commercial reality.
Catapult centres will help businesses to adopt, develop and exploit innovative products and technologies. They offer concentrated expertise, access to cutting edge equipment and specialist facilities to develop and test ideas in reality.
