Thinking Digital Sessions: Brexit for NE Digital Industry

24-01-2017
17:30
Campus North

If Brexit is going to happen, what good is there for the tech sector? There must be opportunities there, surely?  Transition will be turbulent, but how can we help shape something worth it on the other side? What should we be campaigning for? How does the North East’s voice get heard? What can we learn from other countries with specialised tech sectors?

Brexit for the Digital Industries in the North East

Digital Futures powered by Generator presents the first ‘Thinking Digital Sessions’, to try and find some answers. Join Generator and Thinking Digital to discuss these issues over a drink and hear from policy expert and social entrepreneur William Perrin.  He’ll be providing insight from groups in Cardiff and London,  and discussing any positive potential he can see. Then join in a moderated discussion on how we get something out of Brexit for the digital industries in the North East…

William has run tech and Brexit sessions for the Carnegie UK Trust charity/think-tank and this discussion will feed into a forthcoming report by Carnegie on the opportunities and threats of Brexit for the technology sector.

Registration: 5.30pm – 6.00pm

Session: 6.00pm – 8.00pm

Networking: 8.00pm – 9.00pm

Refreshments will be provided.
