What do we do?

Newcastle Science City aims to capitalise on the world-class scientific research being conducted in Newcastle for the economic and social benefit of the City and the region, and to create an environment that enables science and business to work together effectively. We do this by:

  • Investing in and developing Newcastle’s scientific research base (people, projects, facilities);
  • Developing science and innovation-led sites in Newcastle and in particular the former Scottish and Newcastle brewery site;
  • Actively promoting awareness and encouraging participation in science related subjects in secondary and higher education;
  • Encouraging activities to facilitate the commercial exploitation of scientific research by ensuring that tailored specialist business support services are available to scientists, science and technology entrepreneurs, start-ups and businesses

Already over £100m has been invested in Newcastle Science City related projects, demonstrating our commitment to making Newcastle a 21st Century City of Science. These include investments in:

  • Brewery site
  • North East England Stem Cell Institute
  • Institute for Ageing and Health
  • PET Scanner
  • Centre for Nanoelectronic Characterisation
  • Centre for Advanced Electrical Drives
  • Centre for Extreme Technologies
  • Excellence Fund
  • Education, Skills & Public Engagement
  • Enabling Fund
