New tech centre will 'transform' North East into hub for photonic science

New tech centre will 'transform' North East into hub for photonic science

A research and development facility that aims to put the North East at the cutting edge of advances in the healthcare industry has officially opened.

The National Healthcare Photonics Centre - which has been supported by almost £8m in support from the North East LEP - has been designed to support companies that use light-based technology to solve problems in the medical and healthcare industries.

The new facility has been opened by the Centre for Process Innovation (CPI) at Sedgefield’s NETPark and will work with companies developing technology that can help medical professionals diagnose and treat diseases, as well as provide them with high quality images.

The centre provides 2,000sq metres of space for photonics firms, including access to laboratory space.
