Originally formed in 1993 as EURIM we have re-launched as the Digital Policy Alliance to help show government the unprecedented potential of digital innovations to build a stronger economy and more efficient and inclusive public services.
The Digital Policy Alliance is a not-for-profit organisation that informs public policy through:
- expert reports produced by its technical working groups
- briefings for parliamentarians and officials distilled from these reports
- dissemination and networking events
The Alliance works with industry, charities, trade association and observer members to help identify solutions to policy, regulatory and legislative problems impacting UK competitiveness and to help ensure taxpayers’ money is spent efficiently.
The Digital Policy Alliance is not a lobby group and does not participate in lobbying on behalf of individual clients.
