How we're helping level up the economy and educational opportunities in North East England.
Durham University has been part of North East England for nearly 200 years – and we’re working with friends and partners in the region to make it an even more attractive place to study, work and live for the future.
The UK Government has made ‘Levelling Up’ across the regions of the UK a key part of its domestic policy agenda, and we’re playing an important role in achieving this, for the benefit of our region and communities. Here are some examples.
Supporting the economy…
Supporting education and learning…
Investment, innovation, job creation, development
Our Vice-Chancellor and Warden, Professor Karen O’Brien, commented: “We’re proud to have worked with partners across North East England for nearly 200 years to drive investment, innovation, job creation and development.
“We’re actively engaged with our local communities to tackle inequalities and embrace new opportunities, through our impactful research, innovation and investment to transform lives for the better.
“We welcome initiatives to level up the economy and educational opportunities in the North East and look forward to continuing discussions, locally and nationally, on how we can contribute to this important agenda.”
