Digital is a key theme in the long-term economic vision for the regional economy and there is an established base of tech companies in the region, primarily working within energy.
ScotlandIS has a long standing member base in Aberdeen and the north east, with digital technologies expertise from software to data, IT services to cyber security. ONE-led action and investment in the sector includes bespoke support and infrastructure to create a dynamic, high-growth tech company cluster and drive digital transformation in the region’s key sectors to improve productivity and competitiveness.
The new partnership between ONE and ScotlandIS will bring additional resource into the region to support growth in the established company cluster and increase the profile of the region’s tech capabilities with stakeholders, regionally and nationally.
Our Digital Development Manager Dr Jen Scott is based at the ONE Tech Hub on Schoolhill, where a £1.5m investment is creating a dedicated hub for digital and entrepreneurship activity in Aberdeen.
