Net Zero Industry Innovation Centre

This investment will enable the construction of a new and innovative Research and Development facility in the heart of the Tees Valley, located at TeesAMP in Middlesbrough, with a secondary linked site located at the Materials Processing Institute (MPI) at the gateway of Teesworks.

Teesside University, Tees Valley Combined Authority and partners MPI aim to create an internationally recognised Net Zero Technology Cluster (including sustainable energy and energy optimization, decarbonisation, circular economy and the application of industrial digitisation as an enabler to Clean Technology) in the region.

As part of the wider cluster development TU and MPI will establish a modern SME incubator and innovation campus to act as a gateway to the proposed Freeport Zone through Teesworks, the South Tees Development Corporation (STDC) site, and become a recognised Centre of Excellence for the region.  The campus will consist of two distinct, but linked innovation centres comprising offices, laboratories and fully serviced “grow on” space for larger demonstrators.  The campuses will also act as the hub for the region’s industrial decarbonisation activities, providing space for underpinning research, demonstrators and SME support activities.

Subject to approval this project will be part funded by the European Regional Development Fund.
