Northern Accelerator is an exciting collaboration between the North East’s universities, creating real-world impact from world-leading research, commercialising innovation and boosting the region’s economy.
It is driving a step change in the commercialisation of research to help address regional imbalance and strengthen the North East knowledge economy.
We bring together academics and business leaders, with a host of funding and support, to form sustainable businesses that create more and better jobs.
North East Universities’ research accounts for a significantly higher proportion of R&D spend compared with the national average. Northern Accelerator partners therefore believe we have a responsibility and an unmissable opportunity to commercialise research to support local and national economic growth.
