Levelling Up - what does it mean for the North East?

Date: To be announced shortly
Location: This is an online event, hosted on Zoom

In response to the publication of the Government’s Levelling Up White Paper, we are delighted to present the fourth event in the Newcastle Debates series ‘Levelling Up - what does it mean for the North East?’.

With our strong regional track record in research and innovation, and attracting inward investment, for example recent developments in battery cell technology and net-zero transport, the North East is primed to serve as a regional test-bed for future transportation and mobility, and to play a critical role in helping the government deliver on its ambitions for a green economy as well as on its commitment to levelling up the country.

Join us in early 2022, when representatives from regional and national policy will debate the key issues. Panellists to be announced shortly.

The panel will be chaired by Professor Jane Robinson, Pro-Vice-Chancellor, Engagement and Place at Newcastle University.
