Newcastle University is a world-leading university, with a focus on advancing knowledge, providing creative solutions, and addressing global problems. Newcastle University aspires to be a people focused university that harnesses academic excellence, innovation, and creativity to provide benefits to individuals, to organisations and to society as a whole. Our researchers are developing solutions to some of the most pressing problems facing the world today. With particular strengths in ageing and health, data, energy, cities, and culture and the creative arts.
Newcastle University aims to work collaboratively, forming relationships with a range of partners including the government, voluntary organisations, schools, community groups and the cultural sector to shape brighter futures, grow the economy and champion social justice through the locally rooted, nationally connected and globally engaged ‘engagement and place strategy’.
Newcastle University aims to embed, where possible, meaningful and effective patient and public involvement and engagement (PPI/E) in research, teaching and outreach. Effective PPI/E means working directly with patients and public, for the benefit of patients, the public and the University. Through the VOICE platform, the university can ensure that the research is focused on, and driven by, public insights, needs and priorities. VOICE is a key innovative mechanism for the university in enabling and facilitating the public to have visible opportunities to connect to each other as part of our activity.
