techUK’s Local Digital Index Campaign Week #LocalDigitalIndex

The Nations and Regions team are delighted to be hosting our annual Local Digital Index Campaign Week between 16-20 October.

We’ve had a fantastic response from techUK members again this year; we are highlighting the contributions made by the UK tech sector to improve the local and regional tech ecosystems, playing a vital role in the levelling up agenda through innovation and engagement. We will bring you daily insights, articles and videos from various topics, including digital skills development, digital infrastructure, collaboration and partnership, and R&D, all showing the advances made toward strengthening local tech ecosystems.

techUK also has our highly popular Launch event: Local Digital Index 2023 happening on 16 October. We look forward to seeing you there!

Local Digital Index 2023

The Local Digital Index, which has expanded significantly since its inception in response to the evolving tech landscape, offers valuable insights into key aspects of the UK’s tech ecosystem. This guide describes the impact and value technology can bring to a region, showcasing its strengths and providing direction for development. Policymakers can use it to address the challenges faced by each nation and region in the UK more confidently, using data that shows where investment should be directed. The Index helps build a strong tech ecosystem between sectors, policymakers, companies and government by providing data that encourages regional collaboration.

techUK’s Local Digital Index for 2023 shows great examples of innovation, funding, skills, connectivity and more across the UK. To track and monitor this in the future, there must be a move to improve the data captured, shared and analysed. Making more of this data publicly available helps to see the true picture of our digital sector and economy.
