Rural Design Centre

The Rural Design Centre exists to make rural life better

The Rural Design Centre Innovation Project (RDCIP) is being delivered by Advance Northumberland in partnership with the Innovation SuperNetwork and Northumbria University and is the first stream of activity to be undertaken through the Rural Design Centre.  They are part-funded by the European Regional Development Fund and part-funded by The North of Tyne Combined Authority.

The RDCIP team work with people and organisations who are passionate about the place they live and work. They help to create new ideas and turn them into solutions.

Rural UK is more diverse than people think at first. It is much more than farming and tourism. Rural economies have untapped potential for innovation and positive change.

The RDCIP’s primary focus is the North East of England, where they are developing and demonstrating new ways of tackling rural issues. Activity at the moment is located in the North of Tyne Combined Authority area, including Northumberland. Contact them if you are interested in being involved.
