The Rural Design Centre Innovation project is a collaboration between Advance Northumberland, Innovation SuperNetwork and Northumbria University, which utilises the expertise of each entity to help organisations deliver real tangible change in rural communities in the North East of England. 

Part-funded by the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government and part-funded by The North of Tyne Combined Authority the programme will be investing in a wide and varied range of businesses so that they have the resources to identify and investigate opportunities and go forward to developing solutions to challenges, big and small.
