NEXT PHASE DEVELOPMENT AT NETPARK
CPI is opening a new National Centre for Healthcare Photonics (NCHP) based at NETPark, County Durham scheduled to open December 2018. The centre will provide open access facilities and expertise to help companies develop technologies for healthcare applications and turn them into commercially viable products. By reducing the restrictions that commonly prevent early research and inventions reaching market, ultimately improving ways to diagnose and treat disease. Once opened, the centre will present the North East as a global hub for the healthcare photonics industry.The Local Growth Fund awarded the project a support grant of £8.3m, through the North East LEP.Read below to see how CCN contributed and what features in the NCHP building.
