UK’s Innovation Corridor sets out plan to drive collective technology adoption across the region

Brought to you by Cofinitive

The adoption and use of technology are a vital contributor to economic growth and improved productivity. Demand for digital connectivity is accelerating exponentially. In this initial event we will stimulate ideas, and then ask for input on what else can be done to expedite progress.

About the event

The adoption and use of technology are a vital contributor to economic growth and improved productivity. It’s no surprise that the demand for digital connectivity is accelerating exponentially.

 

As we enter a new decade, we are seeking to answer two questions:

1.      Is the existing mandate for technology infrastructure fit for purpose? and

 

2.      Are our businesses and public sector bodies adopting technology quickly enough?

 

The first question of ‘what is enough’ with regards to digital infrastructure (mobile, broadband etc.) there should be a national mandate to ensure that digital connectivity is ubiquitous and delivers where and when we need it.

The second is a broader question – both for the individual business and its technology adoption, but also how technology can accelerate economic growth and productivity – do we have the right skills to achieve this?

 

In this initial event we will showcase some key initiatives and insights across public and private sector. We will stimulate ideas, and then ask for input on what else can be done to expedite progress.

 

Who should attend

Businesses, councils and technology experts to discuss and architect a plan for delivery.

Some of the key questions we will be looking to answer will be: -

-       If we could do more, what would it be? What would we need to achieve more?

-       What does the private sector need? And does this correlate with the public sector targets?

-       How can we provide a consistent service along the corridor?

-       Should we lead on certain technologies e.g. AI?
