Our priorities

Supporting businesses - digital opportunities 

Investment in the region’s digital infrastructure continues apace and is providing enormous opportunities for
businesses and social enterprises to develop new products and services, and present their goods to market in new and innovative ways.

HIE will focus on helping organisations to understand the power and capabilities of superfast broadband and provide assistance to capitalise on the opportunities it presents.

We will ensure that account managed businesses and social enterprises optimise their business models to take advantage of digital connectivity, and provide specialist advice, digital health checks, workshops on relevant topics and a digital innovation grant scheme. We will also support businesses to develop their cyber-resilience, protecting IPR and customer data from on-line threats, while Scotland’s first Digital Excellence Centre, to be based at Inverness Campus, will showcase the latest technologies.
