The South West is a global leader in areas critical to the future well being not just of the economy but the planet itself.
We are at the forefront of research and development in climate science, marine technology, environmental science and agri-tech, and aeronautical engineering.
Technology is fundamental to each of these, and their ability to innovate, find solutions and bring prosperity.
Tech South West covers the whole region, from Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly to Gloucestershire and Wiltshire. Bath and Bristol, Bournemouth and Poole, Devon, Dorset, and Somerset are all part of Tech South West.
The most successful leading tech nations and regions tend to have a population of around 3 to 10 million.
They also consistantly share certain characteristics: a need for fast-paced sustainable growth in tech, a clear desire for a certain kind of quality of life, and high level of respect and care for the environment.
