Fuse vision and aims
Our vision is to contribute to a transformation of the health of people in the North East by building a world class centre of excellence in public health research. The Centre unites academic rigour and excellence with a commitment to the effective implementation of research in policy and practice.
Our aims are to:
Build capacity in North East England to undertake world class public health research
Work collaboratively across the universities of North East England in undertaking national, regional and local research, producing evidence that will ultimately lead to better, fairer health for all
Research and implement ways in which public health research knowledge can be translated effectively into policy and practice
Work with policy and practice partners to understand and develop their role as co-producers of research agendas and collaborators in research, leading to improved public health delivery.
