Digital Economy

The Digital Economy Theme is a partnership between EPSRC, AHRC, ESRC and Innovate UK. It is led by EPSRC.

The Digital Economy Theme is supporting research to rapidly realise the transformational impact of digital technologies on aspects of community life, cultural experiences, future society, and the economy.  The Digital Economy Theme funds research aligned to the following five new priority areas, which were most recently updated in October 2020.

  1. Trust Identity Privacy and Security
  2. Content Creation and Consumption
  3. Beyond a Data Driven Economy
  4. Sustainable Digital Society
  5. Equitable Digital Society

Engagement with the research active community will be held to further develop the priority areas.

These priorities are at the heart of digital economy research.

For information on current and future Digital Economy Theme activities, please refer to the 'Activities' section.
