Back to Who we are

Purpose and values

Life is always evolving to make sure it reflects the needs of the region.

In a world that is increasingly shaped by science and technology, we want to make sure that people in North East England are inspired by the innovation and opportunities that are out there. We want them to see science as relevant, exciting and possibly something they can explore as a career.

Everything we do is rooted in our values

Our team, our customers and our communities are diverse and we celebrate that! We want everyone to feel comfortable, respected and valued.

Our customers and staff deserve the best and we go over-and-above to exceed their expectations.

We are trustworthy, unbiased and behave fairly, ethically and responsibly at all times.


We encourage everyone to question everything and explore science and technology through hands-on experiences and individual discovery.

We’re not scared to push boundaries and try bold, unusual and edgy ways to achieve our ambitions.

We will continue to partner with those who share our passion and values.
