Digital economy

The UK digital sector employs about 1.5 million people and added around £150bn to the UK economy in 2019. Companies in the digital economy apply their tech and expertise to solve problems and enhance day to day services, providing benefits for consumers across food delivery, health, energy, and many more sectors. At techUK, our aim is to ensure the UK remains one of the best places to start and grow a tech firm with benefits for our people, society, economy and planet.

Tech and Innovation

techUK’s Technology and Innovation Programme explores key transformative technologies driving the UK’s digital economy, society and Industry 4.0 including AI, digital identity, cloud, data analytics and emerging technologies such as quantum and RPA. By exploring the convergence of technologies and identifying opportunities to drive adoption and deployment and conducting horizon scanning to identify future technology trends it ensures techUK remains relevant as the technology industry evolves.

Communications Infrastructure and Services

techUK brings together government, the regulator, telecom companies and its stakeholders around four themes; shared infrastructure, security and resilience, unlicensed spectrum and our 5G ecosystem. We do so to lower the cost to the sector of deployment, ensure confidence in networks, spur innovation and unlock value for all parties in 5G. This is delivered through a mix of thought leadership, multilateral engagement and ecosystem building.

Market Access

The techUK Market Access Programme helps members understand, shape, and comply with the increasingly complex array of regulations and laws that underpin international trade. We work with government officials and legal experts to help members understand and shape policy around standards, technical regulations, sanctions, trade policy and export controls, subjects tech firms need to be on top of to trade internationally.
