HP Catalyst Projects

This section of C*A*T*A*L*Y*S*T is the entryway to the extensive listings of vetted projects exploring uses of emerging technologies contained in the Horizon Project data set — easily the largest database of its kind in the world. Multiple avenues and tools are provided for searching — a sophisticated map interface, keywords, regions, technology, and much more. Multiple search terms are permitted, but keep in mind that the more search criteria used, the smaller the resultant set will be.
