MEET THE TEAM > Joanne Rout

I am the NEPIC Project Manager for the Innovate Tees Valley Project. Prior to this, I worked on the BASME Programme supporting the process industry supply chain in the North East.

I have 20 years’ experience in the process chemical industry in Northern England and Canada: initially as a research scientist, developing new products for a range of sectors including automotive. I held management positions in several of ICI’s global businesses with responsibility for product and process development, project delivery and marketing.

I have an excellent knowledge of the industry and related academia and have assembled a resource for inward investment about centres of excellence in the region.

I am passionate about both education and industry and have been working with NEPIC since 2006, developing industry-education links and helping to drive the Children Challenging Industry primary school programme and other STEM education initiatives in the North East. These programmes aim to challenge the perception of young people and their teachers about careers in science and engineering.

Whether you are interested in finding out more about Innovate Tees Valley or wish to discuss the skills and qualifications needed in our industry please contact me by email or by phone.
