As part of London Tech Week 13-17 June, techUK will host a speaker led panel discussion exploring the UK Government's "levelling up" agenda, which has been made an important theme in its vision for a post-Brexit UK economy and society. With large regional disparities in productivity, lower R&D spending in London than in the rest of the UK and significant increases in the cost of living the need for the whole of the UK economy to be firing on all cylinders is more important than ever.
The tech sector has an important role to play – not just in the Government’s goal on Project Gigabit – but also in terms of developing a skilled workforce, leading service improvement, starting new businesses, and providing innovative new practices and new trade opportunities. It’s this work that will underpin Levelling Up the UK economy and allow all areas of the UK to participate.
In September 2020 techUK published the Local Digital Capital Index as part of its work in examining the strength of the tech sector in the UK and the strength of the sector across the UK’s nations and regions. Local Digital Capital describes the building blocks of strong place-based digital technology ecosystems. This is a tool for leaders, businesses, the government and policymakers to use, develop and discuss their own work and interventions and to make the case for investing in regional digital economies as a part of the Levelling Up agenda.
techUK will be running a series of fringe events to support the themes of the week. Across the week we will be joined by senior leaders, government officials and executives as we focus on foreign direct investment, tech policy, net-zero, the foundations for lifelong learning, levelling up, quantum, AI and ethics, the UK Innovation Strategy, and health tech.
