- Mercia Technologies has further expanded its operations into the North of England, through university partnerships with the University of York, the University of Liverpool and Liverpool John Moores University.

This takes the total of Mercia's university partnerships to 14, across the Midlands, the North of England and Scotland.

The three new university partnerships will provide further opportunities for Mercia to tap into the wealth of early stage technology businesses available in the North of England.

Mercia has already expanded its operations to Scotland, with the opening of an Edinburgh office, alongside two partnerships with the University of Strathclyde and Abertay University, announced on 27 October 2015.

Mercia plans to open an office in the North of England in order to work more closely with its partner universities within the region in 2016.
