Thank you!

Thanks to everyone that helped turn the Innovation hub from an idea into reality.

The Innovation Hub was officially opened by the First Minister at an event attended by industry and civic leaders.

We celebrated the launch of the Innovation Hub yesterday after months of hard work. 

It's hard to believe the space was an empty box a few months ago, and this would not have been possible without all our partners who helped turn the Hub from an idea into reality. It has been great working with so many local companies, from our construction firm, to architects, technology installers and caterers, on the project, and we'll continue to do so as the Hub services the industry.

Thanks to the First Minister for officially opening the Hub, and to Steve Phimister, VP for Shell U.K and Ireland, for his excellent speech on culture and behaviours. And, of course, thanks to the Technology Centre team for their tireless effort in getting the Hub ready to deliver.

We truly believe the Hub can help us maximise economic recovery, anchor the supply chain in the North East and create a culture of innovation across the industry.
