What is Local Digital Capital?

Local Digital Capital describes the building blocks of a strong digital ecosystem

The benefits of digital innovation can be better distributed across the UK but must be shaped at the local level. Each area should have a vision of what it wants to achieve. This vision should look at how technology can transform the productivity of businesses and public services beyond the obvious levers of broadband and digital skills to encompass digital adoption and infrastructure, data ecosystems, funding, R&D, and trade support – building blocks that techUK calls Local Digital Capital.

'Building the Future we Need' report

Read the results of our digital dialogues across the UK

How can tech support economic growth and resilience across the UK? In 2020 techUK held 'digital dialogues' with 260 stakeholders in the North East, North West, West Midlands, Yorkshire and Humberside, Wales, Scotland, and Northern Ireland to discuss their experiences and to inform techUK’s future work across the UK. The result is the 'Building the Future We Need' series. The reports explore how the UK’s nations and regions could use digital transformation to build a more prosperous future.
