Durham University Invests Its Quality in Regional Regeneration


Durham University makes a significant contribution to the quality of life and business in the region, as well as playing a major role in the regeneration of the North-East. As the North-East's leading higher education institution and as a key player in the continuing movement for regeneration and enrichment in the region, Durham is proud to celebrate the diversity and success of the ever-growing partnerships between the university and the wider community throughout the region.

It is the region's original university and a leading UK research-intensive institution of international standing. Its reputation reflects consistent high standards of excellence in teaching and top-class research results. This range and depth of the these partnerships was amply demonstrated at a unique regional event held in the Newcastle Gateshead Hilton at the beginning of this month when the University hosted a major exhibition and presentation to an invited audience of key regional partners.

It is also timely to show the strength and depth of the engagement between universities and the rest of the region."

The Regional Development Agency One NorthEast put universities at the heart of the regional economic strategy, and successive government initiatives have been geared to improving the facilities for the best scientific strengths to grow in the region, involving more universities in partnerships with one another and with industry, commerce and public bodies.

Durham is, for example, the location for world-class work in photonics, cell biology, molecular electronics and microsystems and is a leading player in the field of renewable energy sources with the development of wave power generation.

Through its Technology Transfer Office, the University fosters more entrepreneurial activity among academic research staff, and in the student community and via the Queen's Campus, Stockton, the University is part of a key strand of sub-regional redevelopment in the Tees Valley. …
