Durham, Newcastle, Northumbria and Sunderland Universities are working together to accelerate the translation of world-class research into commercial opportunities. We bring together academics and business leaders, with a host of funding and support, to form sustainable businesses that create more and better jobs.
Backed by funding from the European Regional Development Fund and Research England’s Connecting Capability Fund, we’re already making a demonstrable impact.
With a pipeline of innovation from a strong research base and teams with excellent technology transfer experience, our collaborative approach is developing untapped potential and transforming the North East’s university innovation infrastructure.
Our support covers every stage of the research commercialisation journey, from the germ of an idea through to the launch and growth of a successful spin-out business.
