Delivered by Centre for Rural Economy, Newcastle University

Hosted by BT

Venue: Boiler House, Newcastle University

Rural areas are key to delivering the Industrial Strategy and there are already examples of new technologies being deployed and tested across the North – for example, autonomous vehicles being tested in the Lake District and augmented reality helping visitors experience the cultural heritage of the Pennines. Join Newcastle University’s Centre for Rural Economy, for a practical workshop looking at how innovations can work within rural areas and the role of the rural as a test bed for innovation.
