About Katapult


Katapult’s mission is to support a culture of innovation and entrepreneurship for the students and educational staff at the Faculty of Science and the Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences. (Former four faculties of Science, Life Sciences, Health Sciences and Pharmaceutical Sciences)  

We pursue this mission through Incubator activities, business case studies, funding assistance and in collaboration with instructors.
We support and advise students wishing to qualify their ideas and serve to assist them in developing competences relevant to the starting of their own business or work with innovation and development within a given company or organisation.

With the intention of strengthening and supporting both subject knowledge and professional competency, we also develop courses in tandem with those instructors from individual departments who desire to integrate innovation and entrepreneurship in their coursework.


Finally, we work closely with a wide variety of public and private entities. These organisations provide students with case challenges to work with in projects related to their academic field. This collaborative setup enables students to acquire hands-on experience and gain a realistic perspective on their academic projects. Organisations benefit by accessing up-to-date knowledge and fresh, innovative solutions provided by highly educated students.
