About County Durham and the North East of England

The North East is a great place to live and work and offers a fantastic blend of spectacular scenery such as the historic Durham Cathedral and Durham Dales, entertainment such as the Durham Gala Theatre and arts and culture including the Sage Gateshead and the Baltic Centre.

A competitive location, County Durham offers a unique package which includes premises at NETPark, reliable communications networks, high-tech R&D facilities , a skilled workforce and finance.

A County for the 21st Century. While County Durham's heritage of creativity and innovation stretches back over hundreds of years, its vision lies firmly in the future through the North East Technology Park (NETPark).

North East England is home to five world-class universities, including Durham University. The depth and quality of their combined research is formidable, covering fields such as nano technology, bio-science, electronics, chemistry, astronomy and engineering. Much of the fruits of this research is already emerging into the commercial world, and there is more to come.

One of County Durham's principal assets is its people. Companies new to the County have consistently been impressed by the quality of the local workforce. One of the reasons the County has so successfully diversified from its traditional skills base is the willingness of its workers to adapt to new technologies. Yet they have not forgotten the traditional values of hard work and loyalty.
