NETPark Ambassador Programme

What is the NETPark Ambassador programme?

The NETPark Ambassador programme is an exclusive, invitation only programme for exceptional individuals to support the ethos of NETPark in building both a common understanding of innovation and pride in one of County Durham’s economic assets.

NETPark Ambassadors help us to build partnerships, identify potential breakthroughs, and attract investment to build wealth and prosperity for the local economy.

To help you get the most from the programme, we have created the NETPark Ambassador Tool Kit will ensure you can use the NETPark brand easily and effectively. We have also created the official NETPark Ambassador logo which will help you to communicate the NETPark messages to a wider audience including investors and key influencers across the world.  NETPark Ambassadors are entitled to:

NETPark Ambassador logo and guidance on how to use the logo with reciprocal links back to the NETPark home page or on business cards, banner stands etc.
A profile entry for your organisation on the NETPark website ‘NETPark Ambassadors’ page.
An information pack with further details and key messages and testimonials.
The ability to submit your own testimonials to feature on the NETPark website.
Gift pack including pin badge, folder and branded datastick with the above information electronically.
Invitation to events including an exclusive Ambassadors reception and VIP events and visits as appropriate.

The North East Technology Park (NETPark) ambassador programme got off to a ‘flying’ start when it was officially launched by Colonel Ron Garan, the NASA Astronaut who visited County Durham in 2012.

The NETPark Ambassador scheme aims to create a common “science and technology citizenship” for individuals who have actively help to promote the NETPark ethos of innovation.
