Collaboration initiatives will continue in a range of areas and opportunities to develop new joint-projects will be progressed by individual universities working together.

A message from the chair, Professor Andrew Wathey, Vice-Chancellor and Chief Executive, Northumbria University

“Universities for the North East has helped to progress a number of joint initiatives across the region’s five universities over its 13 years.

“However, now that this collaborative way of working is well embedded across our institutions, formal structures to support this are no longer needed. The Vice-Chancellors will continue to meet regularly and staff at all levels of our universities work together on a range of initiatives.

We thank you for working with Universities for the North East.”
