Wednesday 21 April, 14:00-15:00
SHEDTalk with Tim Hammond & David Huntley, Northern Accelerator.
This month’s SHEDTalk has a place-based, levelling up theme as Sean welcomes Tim Hammond, Director of Commercialisation and Economic Development, University of Durham and David Huntley, Head of Company Creation, Newcastle University to his shed to talk about the Northern Accelerator.
The Northern Accelerator is a collaborative project between the universities of Durham, Newcastle, Northumbria, and Sunderland that has been running since 2016. Its aim is to commercialise research and boost the region’s economy in the long-term by improving the ecosystem for new company creation, investment and growth. This involves not only attracting investment but also attracting company leaders who can take spin-outs to the next stage of growth.
Tim and David will discuss the need for a Northern Accelerator, how the project is managed and run across its university partners, particularly challenges that have been overcome, and ambitions for the future.
