Dionne Lowndes, Head of Digital for Staffordshire County Council will explain in the session ‘Building a Smart Staffordshire’ how SCC are responding to the Industrial Strategy White Paper 2017. The 3 main points that Dionne will cover include:
- People – the role of technology means increasing change for how people live, work and earn. For Staffordshire, we are putting in place transformation and inclusivity strategies at workforce and community level.
- Partnership – the Industrial Strategy is underpinned by the need to co-create the UK’s future. Smart Staffordshire is the co-creation of a shared strategy with our partners to ensure that Staffordshire gets the best deal and the brightest economic future.
- Place – by developing a People Helping People approach to co-create self-supporting communities and using innovation to help Staffordshire to meet the needs of our ageing society.
