Regional Partnerships


Regional Partnerships

Through our regional partnerships, Newcastle University is having a positive impact on the city of Newcastle and the north-east.

Newcastle University is integrally connected to the region and we are proud to collaborate with local and regional policymakers. Our partnerships include:

Angel Alliance

Newcastle and Durham universities have joined forces to maximise the impact of academic research and discoveries.

The partnership focuses on turning academic research into commercial success, building on the impressive track record of both universities in creating spin-out companies.

The Angel Alliance engages directly with the regional NHS Foundation Trusts, including:

  • Newcastle University’s Faculty of Medical Sciences
  • Newcastle upon Tyne Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust
  • County Durham and Darlington NHS Foundation Trust
  • South Tees Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust

Newcastle Science City

Newcastle Science City represents a long-established partnership between Newcastle University and Newcastle City Council.

The partnership aims to:

  • create new businesses
  • attract investment
  • strengthen scientific networks
  • ensure local involvement in our continued scientific achievement

Since 2014, the key focus has been the delivery of Newcastle Helix. Set to become a hub for research, innovation and collaboration, it is one of the largest developments of its kind in the UK.
