Centre for Knowledge, Innovation, Technology and Enterprise (KITE)

The Centre for Knowledge, Innovation, Technology and Enterprise (KITE) brings together Newcastle University's extensive research capabilities on:

  • innovation management and policy
  • enterprise
  • the social, economic, managerial, organisational and cultural aspects of information and communications technologies and their social consequences, and
  • studies of the role of universities in society

KITE’s activities are mainly in the Newcastle University Business School, with links to other Schools and Institutes across the University.

With the designation of Newcastle as a Science City, KITE is undertaking research on the evolving international environment for place-based innovation policy, as well as developing links with the main science and technology streams of the Newcastle Science Central project.
