The UK Research and Innovation Digital Economy Theme supports research to rapidly realise the transformational impact of digital technologies on aspects of community life, cultural experiences, future society, and the economy.

In order to achieve this, Digital Economy research aims to address four priority areas:

  • Trust, identity, privacy and security
  • Digital business models
  • The internet of things for a service economy
  • Content creation and consumption

Other Research Councils also contribute to the Digital Economy Theme. More information on sub-themes can be found on the UK Research and Innovation webpages.
