About us

We are a research and knowledge exchange partnership comprising North East England's five universities, local authorities, police and fire and rescue services and other key public sector agencies. Membership is based on an annual subscription.

Strategic decisions are taken by the Governing Board whose inaugural meeting took place in October 2009. The Board is supported by the Management Committee and by a staff team led by Professor John Mawson, the Director of the Institute.
