DCMS Digital Economy Minister Ed Vaizey is seeking ideas from public and industry on the UK’s digital strategy. The 2009 Digital Britain consultation galvanised many people working in digital technologies and innovation. In that spirit we want to encourage discussion and input from a still wider group.
If you want to contribute to this debate, please join us for an informed high-level and frank discussion on the relationship of digital technologies and national challenges, the history of ‘technological revolutions’, and how we can shape the (digital) future.
If you would like to take part please book via Eventbrite, where you can also add the event to your calendar and find a map locating the venue. (There is a cost to take part in this discussion, to cover the costs of food and refreshments.)
Discussions are attended by around 15 people, and a reading list can be found on the event page. Following the model of the previous discussion, we will be encouraging participants to write-up their conclusions, in this case to contribute to a submission to the Department for Culture, Media & Sport.
