The Tech sector is one of the fastest growing in the UK, creating innovative companies that are transforming the economy. The Digital Tech Cluster, managed by the Science and Technology Facilities Council, will provide support which is reflective of the needs of these fast-growing companies.

Centred at Sci-Tech Daresbury, but reaching across the North West region and beyond, the cluster will catalyse growth through activities such as peer-to-peer networks, business support, and access to cutting-edge facilities, skills and training.

Join us to hear about how the Science and Technology Facilities Council will deliver a programme of support working alongside its network of partners, and building on its experience and track-record in growing thriving regional industry clusters.

The event will include a panel discussion on how the cluster can support the levelling-up of the UK – building on regional strengths to grow the local and national economy. This discussion will include senior representatives from across the public and private sectors.

Join us in person or virtually as we embark on this exciting journey.
