Regener8 works closely with a number of academic, clinical and industry partners. We also have close links with other networks across the UK and with the N8 Universities, research institutes and clinical centres of excellence in regenerative medicine across the North of England.

Medical Technologies IKC

Regener8 has formed a strategic alliance with the Medical Technologies IKC to deliver and broaden our support, networking and national influencing. Based at the University of Leeds, the Medical Technologies IKC is an Innovation and Knowledge Centre funded by the UK Research Councils, EPSRC and BBSRC, and the Technology Strategy Board.

The alliance of the two organisations provides a greater pool of expertise and resource for Regener8’s operations and allows Regener8 members to benefit from the IKC’s translational emphasis.

N8 Research Partnership

The N8 Research Partnership is a partnership of the 8 research intensive universities in the North of England - Durham, Lancaster, Leeds, Liverpool, Manchester, Newcastle, Sheffield and York.

The N8 Research Partnership aims to maximise the impact of this research base by identifying and co-ordinating powerful research teams and collaborations across the North of England. To support the collaborations, the N8 Research Partnership creates teams with a critical mass of world class academics. These teams form a network of virtual centres of science and innovation excellence.

The N8 Research Partnership's main research programmes are:

  • Molecular Engineering
  • Regenerative Medicine
  • Impact of Demographic Change
  • Parasitology

The three broad criteria for the N8 Research Partnership research programmes are:

  • Demand for multi disciplinary solutions from public and private sector research users
  • Combinations of multi disciplinary world class capability across a number the N8 universities
  • Where working together can achieve a greater output than a single university effort.

Through these programmes, the N8 Research Partnership has worked with over 200 new businesses, many of which are SME’s, generated over £37m of income and created 60 jobs since it was formed in 2008.
