Working together to maximise the job creation potential of digital

TechRevolution, an URBACT Transfer Network, provides an opportunity for six cities from across the EU to get under the skin of an URBACT Good Practice developed and delivered in Barnsley UK which centres around two main pillars (below) as well as some spin-off activities. • Enterprising Barnsley - a successful business support programme; • The Digital Media Centre (DMC) - a landmark hub for creative and digital business in the town centre. It enables these cities to come together to study every element of the practice in a safe and honest space, to consider their own local contexts and strategic priorities and then to adapt different aspects of what Barnsley has done within their local setting. See the full Tech-Revolution Transferability Study here.

By facilitating growth in knowledge based jobs and businesses across all sectors and industries we aim to connect EU partners to share ideas and practices and benchmark them against other EU cities to inform the development of an 'ecosystem' needed to encourage digital growth, and transformational economies.
