North East Process Indsutry Cluster (NEPIC) is a membership organisation in the northeast of England, working with more than 500 organisations involved in the process sector. This sector employs around 34000 people in the region directly and many more indirectly.

NEPIC is working on the future sustainability and development of this cluster. Included in this is a comprehensive education & engagement programme aimed at inspiring and developing young people's interest in science, and ultimately leading them towards careers in the process sector.

We are interested in activities that help to promote the use of chemistry and the impact it has on the lives of everyone.
