Arrow can help you access knowledge at four world-class universities, Durham University, Newcastle University, Northumbria University and the University of Sunderland. It links businesses with knowledge and research to help foster success in our region.

Businesses supported by Arrow are matched with the expertise and university best suited to your project’s requirements. Whether you’re looking for testing facilities, scientific insights or a research partner, Arrow will help you access the bespoke support you need. We can help you unlock innovation and accelerate your pathway to success.

Fully-funded support

Arrow short innovation projects are fully-funded and open to businesses based in County Durham, North Tyneside, Newcastle and Northumberland. It has already helped over 150 businesses in the region innovate, and new funding means that more businesses of all sizes can access a wider range of expertise from across four leading universities. Organisations who have previously undertaken an Arrow project are also able to apply again. 
Arrow is part-funded by the UK Government through the UK Shared Prosperity Fund with the North of Tyne Combined Authority and Durham County Council as the lead authority in their respective areas.
If your business is ready to innovate, and based in County Durham or North of Tyne, then get in touch with Arrow to discuss your ideas or projects and to see if Arrow is the right fit for you. Find out more about how you can access support through Arrow
