The Digital Sector Strategy will build on the region's strong foundations of technology excellence for the benefit of the entire area and the country as a whole.
Its recommendations will help establish the Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Combined Authority (CPCA) as the preferred base for firms from across the world to create the technologies of tomorrow. By generating exceptional talent at all levels and developing a highly networked ecosystem of partners stretching across the region, the country and internationally, we hope to enable businesses in all sectors to thrive.
This will be a place where successful companies collaborate to develop solutions that will transform all sectors of the economy, and high levels of digital literacy will contribute to the prosperity of the region.
To this end, CW and Anglia Ruskin University, with funding from CPCA, are collaborating with key industry stakeholders and local business to build an independent and impartial Digital Sector Strategy for the region. This Strategy will define the steps needed to harness the region's present digital strengths and maximise the long-term productivity of the technology sector. Its recommendations will contribute to the Local Industrial Strategy of the CPCA and complement other items of work such as the CPIER and the Science and Innovation Audit.
