Innovation & Technology

The Innovation & Technology Group exists to support the regions advances in new technology.

The objective of the group is to:

  • Showcase latest technologies
  • Improve links with Universities
  • Provide funding advice and support
  • Coordinate collaborative project grants
  • Help commercialise new products and technologies

We are proud that the North East accounts for 26% of all EV production across Europe.

In February 2017, the NEAA launched the Manufacturing Innovation Group (MIG) to drive collaboration and regional competitiveness. The MIG will ensure the North East automotive industry delivers a consolidated approach to manufacturing project challenges, pooling knowledge and resources to identify best solutions for maximum productivity and adoption.
