Helping businesses solve big problems.

With funding from the North of Tyne Combined Authority, Challenge North Tyne brings communities and industry together to bring about solutions for healthy ageing, decarbonization of homes and 5G.

What's the offer?

The programme will define challenges that are a priority for our region and invite small and medium-sized enterprises based in the North of Tyne to respond with an idea for a solution.

Successful ideas will receive up to £5000 in prototype funding to develop impactful ideas and take part in a co-design programme to rapidly develop and test solutions with end-users and potential customers.

  • Challenge 1: Supporting people at home, work and play in later life
  • Challenge 2: Delivering energy efficient, low carbon homes

Challenge North of Tyne is funded by the North of Tyne Combined Authority’s Innovation Recovery Programme, a £10million fund designed to help restart the area’s economy through projects that are innovative, create jobs and support businesses to diversify, plan for the future and access new markets.
