Newcastle and 
the North East

Once the city that spearheaded the Industrial Revolution, Newcastle continues its legacy as a beacon of progress in a tech-driven world. Today, the North East is the densest region in England for employment in the life sciences and healthcare sector, proudly hosting numerous research facilities – from the National Innovation Centre for Ageing to the Centre for Process Innovation. The Helix is the latest chapter in Newcastle’s inspiring story of innovation.
