Belfast’s Digital Innovation Ambitions | Invest Northern Ireland

20/01/2023 invest ni web

Belfast is a city of creators and inventors. Innovation is in our DNA.

In the early 20th century, the city was home to the world’s largest shipyard, building the biggest ocean liners in the world.

Today, Northern Ireland’s capital city is a world-leading hub of discovery in digital technology and research excellence, with a thriving knowledge economy ecosystem and a vibrant and engaged community of innovators, businesses, researchers, and start-ups.

Together, city partners have made Belfast a great place to nurture new ideas, to grow a business, to solve urban challenges, and to impress the world.

Over the next decade, innovative technologies will have a profound impact on our economy and on society. With Belfast’s proud history of innovators and significant investment on the horizon, the city is perfectly positioned to make the most of opportunities presented by innovation – not least by creating more and better jobs, regenerating our city and improving quality of life for our citizens and visitors.

The city is developing long-term plans that will put in place the investments required to address the challenges generated by the wider global economic transformation  and  the need to respond to climate change. Digital innovation has an increasingly dominant role to play in social, economic and environmental policy. Our ambition is to find ways to harness this innovation to better support Belfast’s transformation into a more productive and sustainable city.

The city’s port, Belfast Harbour, has equally ambitious plans. It aims to become a world- leading regional port and create an iconic waterfront for Belfast that is an attractive place for people to live, work, invest and visit as well as a hub for inward investment, innovation and tourism. Increased collaboration and partnerships with city stakeholders are key to driving this growth and regeneration and maximising the impact across the wider city.

The city has taken steps to drive forward Belfast’s collective innovation ambitions by forming an innovation partnership of city leaders and developing an urban innovation framework to support the city’s innovation ecosystem.

Three areas in the city have also been strategically selected – the Belfast  Smart  District, Belfast Innovation District and Belfast Smart Port – that offer particularly rich environments for our innovation community to collaborate on research; for businesses to form and scale; for investments to flourish; and for next generation urban services to emerge.
