FutureScot, in association with The Sunday Times Scotland, is delighted to invite you to a series of regional events reflecting the unique successes, challenges and opportunities of digital technology within each of Scotland’s city regions.
Stirling is embarking on a major programme of investment with the city rapidly becoming an integral part of Scotland’s fast-growing tech scene. Hear from those leading the local digital revolution and gain a deeper understanding of what is already happening, how is it contributing to the development of the city region and what needs to happen next to make the most of technological change.
The seminar will consider the biggest challenges and opportunities: how can Stirling harness the potential of technology to its fullest extent to support business, create new opportunities for young people in education and in employment opportunities, improve public services and drive the local economy? How do we overcome the key challenges of connectivity and skills? In a world where a multitude of devices are interconnected, and can calculate, evaluate and learn, how do we ensure that everyone benefits from the internet of things, and the power of big data to transform lives?
The Scottish Government’s Digital Strategy and financial investment in Scotland’s Cities is a significant commitment to making Scotland’s cities smarter, more dynamic and better placed to completed in a global connected world: Can Stirling create the best possible environment for technology to enable citizens to flourish?
