Local Digital Capital Index 2022

In September 2021 techUK launched our first iteration of the Local Digital Capital Index at Advanced’s Offices in Birmingham. The Index provided a new econometric tool that enable the sector, policy makers, companies, government (local, regional and national) to look at the components that make up a strong local tech sector and ecosystem.

On 15 September techUK will be publishing the Local Digital Capital Index for 2022 alongside a day of discussion sessions, keynote speakers, networking and more at Manchester Met University (one of our university partners on TechSkills). The day will look at the role technology can play in levelling up, the work being done by techUK members and partners, and look in more depth at how we improve the different components that make up digital capital including digital skills, digital infrastrcuture, digital adoption, trade support, innovation, supporting SMEs and financing. 

 This will be an in-person event (there will be some virtual opportunities as part of the day but the majority of the day will be based on in-person attendance).

 The agenda and speakers will be announced in the coming weeks but this is your opportunity to secure your place at this event and join discussion that supports investing in, developing and growing the UK's regional tech sector.
