The DIATOMIC (Digital InnovAtion TransfOrMatIve Change) project aims to build the innovation capability and capacity to drive growth and prosperity in the West Midlands, positioning Birmingham and the West Midlands as a leading UK city in digital innovation and inclusive innovation.  The project will accelerate place-based innovation in the West Midlands. Harnessing the region’s existing international relationships and through a series of targeted initiatives, it will focus on growing the region’s clean tech, health tech and med tech markets. The programme is being led by Connected Places Catapult alongside partners: Aston University, Birmingham Chambers of Commerce, Birmingham City Council, Birmingham City University and the University of Birmingham.

The project will enable civic leaders to set innovation challenges, support local SMEs to respond, and benefit the community through the UK’s first Inclusive Innovation hub. It will also promote the use of data to enable better place-based decision making and develop an impact assessment toolkit.
