Teesside University reveals local job boost

A digital centre for excellence on Teesside has revealed it's put £20 million back into the local economy through job creation.

DigitalCity Innovation (DCI) at Teesside University says it's created at least 265 jobs and 190 companies since 2008, through business support programmes and local industry connections.

Laura Woods, head of academic enterprise at Teesside University, said:

"We've looked closely into what the Tees Valley and wider North East need in terms of skilled graduates, and which areas of business are growing.

"These figures show DCI is working. A cluster of digital businesses has been built up in the North East and there are talented graduates and postgraduates being produced to work in these businesses."
