Digital Catapult, Euston Road, London, UK


Join Digital Catapult on Tuesday 11 February for the FED4SAE showcase – bringing together both innovative startups in the connected technology sector and a range of key stakeholders for a day of demos, presentations and networking.

Digital Catapult is the UK hub for FED4SAE and is a part of a network of innovation hubs across Europe boosting and sustaining the digitisation of industry by strengthening competitiveness in cyber physical systems (CPS). FED4SAE facilitates the development of new CPS solutions, products and businesses in five main application domains: smart health, smart city, smart manufacturing, smart mobility and smart transportation. The startups from this programme have each received funding and expert support to further develop their smart city and industrial IoT solutions.

Fundamental to the adoption and development of advanced digital technologies is the need to support the growth of both tech and non-tech based startups.

The FED4SAE programme has three main goals through which it aims to achieve this development.

  • Enable both tech and non-tech innovative third party startups and scaleups to build new products and services with “digital inside”
  • Act as a European added-value one-stop-shop to facilitate innovators-suppliers cross-border partnerships, to accelerate innovation, providing technical, industrial and innovation management expertise.
  • Link innovators to investors to enable further funding opportunities and the next steps of the third parties’ developments after completing their application experiments.

  • Venture capitalists and representatives of investment funds
  • Corporate venture firms and representatives of corporates
  • Angel syndicates, networks and groups
