The University is working with global energy company, ENGIE, to explore joint projects that address challenges around ageing, smart data and energy.
The strategic relationship will link ENGIE’s ‘Cities of Tomorrow’ initiative with the University’s Newcastle City Futures, and will span each of the three national research centres recently announced for Science Central. The partnership will primarily concentrate on the analysis of urban data, digital services for ageing populations, intelligent networks and battery storage.
The MOU was signed by the Vice-Chancellor and Isabelle Kocher, CEO, ENGIE, at a special event at The Core, on the Science Central site.
Professor Chris Brink said: “This new partnership is testament to the potential of Science Central as a global centre for urban innovation. Building on the announcement of three national research centres, working with ENGIE will take us a step closer to realising our vision for Science Central as an exemplar of sustainable urban development.”
