Collaborative Networks

NETPark companies can link into several national and international networks including the Institute of Engineering and Technology (IET), and the Institute of Physics (IoP).

Companies can also access potential global partners at over 450 other science and technology parks through NETPark’s active participation in the International Association of Science Parks (IASP) and the United Kingdom Science Park Association (UKSPA).

Catherine Johns, Innovation and Business Growth Director of Business Durham, which manages NETPark, was on the board of UKSPA (United Kingdom Science Park Association) from 2010 – 2016 and the International Association of Science Parks and Areas of Innovation between 2014 – 2016. In 2016 Catherine founded Women in IASP (International Association of Science Parks) with the primary aim of the subnetwork to inspire each other and the girls who are our future leaders.

Hand picked events to help science, engineering and technology grow.

The quality of the facilities at NETPark and the attitude of staff is first class. It has a really dynamic, innovative atmosphere.

Dr Neil Loxley, - Chief executive, IBEX

The proximity to the universities and the infrastructure are very important factors. Ultimately having a presence in Europe is very valuable to us and we intend to stay at NETPark for many years to come.

Dr Arnab Basu, - CEO, Kromek

When looking for premises which would support our growth, whilst we’d looked at other locations nothing came close to NETPark. The office is modern and well serviced and reflects the type of company we are.

Paul Ashley , - Co-Founder, PNTS

We’re delighted to have opened our new site at NETPark.  This will make it easier for us to attract the best engineering talent to the Tharsus team so that we can continue to deliver game-changing robotic systems for our customers.

Brian Palmer , - CEO, Tharsus

We initially came because of the printable electronics centre but access to a highly skilled semi conductor workforce in the North East has been a key factor in us staying and growing here, as well as the value for money office space and the access to funding.

Ken Williamson, - COO, PragmatIC Printing

CPI has developed a specialist offering to support SMEs looking to develop their printable electronics applications and our partnership with Business Durham has been instrumental in attracting several SMEs to locate here in the region.

Dr Jon Helliwell, - Director of Printable Electronics, CPI

It fits perfectly for us that we’re surrounded by like-minded companies at NETPark. There are a number of highly skilled people in the area who can help us grow our business. The facilities and services offered by NETPark are first class, they make office life simple and engaging.

Stuart Wilson, - CEO, Ascarii

Access to quality facilities was one of the main drivers for deciding to locate the business at the NETPark. We have been able to use this as a launch pad to link into support from CPI and world-class expertise from Durham University.
