Regional Development

The North East of England

Home to five great universities, two national knowledge centres for data science and ageing, and a thriving ecosystem of Digital Technology companies, the North East is embracing the technology revolution in the same way as it was once at the forefront of the industrial revolution. Outside of London its technology sector is experiencing the fastest growth in the UK and in a recent Growth Cities report the North East ranked higher than the South East and most other regions on having a great work life balance, great cost of living, great income distribution, great universities, and a great working environment.
