Science and Technology Secretary Michelle Donelan’s call to North East

The Government wants the most innovative North East firms to spearhead a new campaign at the heart of Whitehall.

Science and Technology Secretary Michelle Donelan wants them to showcase their innovations at the entrance to the new Department for Science, Innovation and Technology HQ in London, as part of the Department’s plans to champion innovation.

Saying: “UK businesses, universities and research organisations are already world leaders in their fields, and nowhere is that truer than in the North East. As highlighted by the sci-tech companies based at the North East Technology Park, and the three Catapult centres in Sunderland, Blyth and Durham bridging the gap from R&D to market.

“To seize on the potential for science and technology to keep our nation secure, our people prosperous, and our planet healthy, it is essential we place this work at the very centre of what we do in Government – and hosting them in our new HQ demonstrates our commitment to working hand-in-hand with the sector while opening up one more avenue for collaboration.
