The GX project, led by NewcastleGateshead Initiative, provides a range of opportunities to North-East SMEs and scaleups before, during and after the Great Exhibition of the North. The project is delivered by NewcastleGateshead Initiative in partnership with the Innovation SuperNetwork.
With a focus on innovation the project was originally designed to enable local businesses to benefit from the
unique platform provided by the Exhibition in 2018, and it continues to capitalise on collaborations between the Smart Specialisation, Education and Cultural sectors through a programme of intensive business support running until December 2020.
This project is part-funded by the England European Regional Development Fund as part of the European Structural and Investment Funds Growth Programme 2014-2020.
