Moving Ahead

Enabling local businesses to further their Research, Development and Innovation projects

Moving Ahead is a new initiative that will enable Keele University to work with a cohort of innovation-ready businesses to develop detailed, fundable proposals for intensive Research, Development and Innovation projects.

Moving Ahead will also promote networking and collaboration through the creation of a broader Newcastle-under-Lyme Innovation Network, bringing together businesses and partners across sectors to share knowledge, expertise and resources, and stimulate innovation and growth.

The Innovation Network will prepare a new generation of collaborators in the Borough through a series of events to stimulate peer-to-peer learning, and opportunities to engage with academic experts and visits.  

Organisations in Newcastle-under-Lyme can register their interest in Moving Ahead today by contacting the Keele Gateway team: or 01782 733001.

Moving Ahead is part-funded by the UK Government through the UK Shared Prosperity Fund, through Newcastle-under-Lyme Borough Council.
