Offshore Renewable Energy Catapult – EU Funds & Regional Collaboration
Between June 2014 and February 2015 Nautilus were retained by Offshore Renewable Energy (ORE) Catapult, a leading technology and innovation centre, headquartered in Glasgow, to identify investment opportunities aligned to European Structural Investment Funds. Nautilus developed a clear understanding of the Catapults corporate objectives and investment plans to inform our work to map and engage with key delivery partners across England and the Devolved administrations such as Local Enterprise Partnerships and government departments.
Our work resulted in regional investment proposals being developed for multi-£million innovation and delivery programmes to support SMEs and regional cluster development. The design and creation of these models facilitated moderate investment from the Catapult and regional stakeholders leveraging European funds to support their implementation.
Nautilus currently continues to work in partnership with the ORE Catapult to support the implementation of their regional activity in the East of England.
