Innovate UK has put in place comprehensive monitoring and evaluation frameworks for each Catapult for the next five years. These will provide robust evidence of impact and value for money for the public funding provided, with regular data analysis and reporting.

Evidence of impact at network level is published at https://www.enterpriseresearch.ac.uk/wp-content/uploads/2022/12/ERC-Insight-Evaluating-the-medium-term-business-performance-effects-of-engaging-with-the-Catapults-network-VaninoRoper.pdf and https://www.enterpriseresearch.ac.uk/wp-content/uploads/2023/05/ERC-Report-Catapulting-into-the-Innovation-System-Vanino-Roper.pdf.
