Catalyzer for public-private partnerships in vocational and professional education

We are Katapult

In a world of ultra-rapid change, we need robust vocational and professional education to build a sustainable future. At Katapult, we believe that the key to building flourishing educational institutions is cultivating mutually beneficial relationships with the commercial sectors by forming public-private partnerships. We are a learning network that supports these public-private partnerships with tools and guidance so they can build robust organizations that will benefit students, educational institutions, industry and society. In our Impact report 2023 you will find an overview of the activities and impact of our network in the Netherlands.


Use our network and matchmaking tool to build relationships with new partners in your field. The pink markers indicate already existing public-private partnerships, the grey markers are organisations looking for potential partners. How does it work?
