Professor Stephanie Glendinning, Professor of Civil Engineering at Newcastle University

Stephanie Glendinning Professor of Civil Engineering leads a University initiative for NIRES (Newcastle Institute of Research on Sustainability) which will have major buildings housed on the Science Central site.

She said: “The North East is now one of the only net exporting regions in the UK and much of that export is based on science. Science Central is an opportunity for us to build on that scientific experience and expertise, collaborating with business and industry to make a real impact not just here in the North East but on a global scale.”
