Welcome to the Digital Innovation Zone

The Digital revolution will offer many opportunities but also pose many challenges to the nature of work, the viability of business and employment models, the way we deliver services and the way we live our lives.

In many ways the impact of the initial wave of the digital revolution is apparent to us all but what are the more profound changes to come and how can we prepare to maximise the benefits for and soften the harsher impacts of disruption?

The Essex & Hertfordshire Digital Innovation Zone (DIZ) has been created jointly by organisations from business, health, education, local authorities and the voluntary and community sector, each with a key role in making sure that our place, west Essex and eastern Hertfordshire, is ready to respond to the challenges and opportunities ahead.

This geography crosses many borders and the partnership crosses a number of sectors but it has in many ways a common business and health economy.

We want our place to be a beacon for the application of new technology, to use it to grow our economic prosperity and provide the best services to our local communities in the most efficient way.

The Digital Innovation Zone (DIZ) is the most joined up, comprehensive and inclusive partnership of its kind in the UK and together we are working to make it best connected place of its type in the UK.
