Report to be published on
5G impact on GDP

We have commissioned Deloitte to look at the economic impact enhanced digital capability (using 4G and 5G technologies) would have across Scotland.

This study builds on the previous study published in 2015 where it was estimated Scotland’s GDP would increase by £13bn, with this new report providing improved estimates of the economic impact that could be achieved for Scotland under different future scenarios.
The study is due to be published over the summer.  To ensure you receive your copy, please email Derek Graham in our Digital Infrastructure team and you’ll be notified when it comes out.

hub project pipeline
increases by £150m

Small and medium-sized businesses and local communities spread across Scotland are set to benefit as latest figures published by us show the value of new community projects in development through the Scotland-wide hub programme has risen from £600m to £750m in the last three months.


Lessons being shared from education programme

We have created a series of eight videos to showcase some of the fantastic work that has been achieved across the SFT-managed Scotland’s Schools for the Future Programme.

The videos represent a range of projects highlighting what has been achieved in relation to design, use of space and the different approaches being taken to teaching and learning.

If you have any questions regarding the videos, please contact Seonaid Crosby or Stephen Long in our Education Infrastructure team.

Knowledge Sharing

In delivering our Place and Smarter Working initiatives across Scotland’s public sector, we’ve built up quite a bit of knowledge that is now available to be shared with anyone in the public sector.
Our Knowledge Hub or 'KHub' is a key enabler in supporting collaborative working with multiple partners across our Place and Smarter Working initiatives. 

Khub provides access to templates, workshop formats, evaluation and utilisation tools, case studies, agreements and much more, which are available to view or download that will help deliver workplace change, quicker and more successfully.
To gain access to the KHub platform, please contact Kelly Meldrum or Shona Adam at SFT.

If you know someone who would benefit from receiving our e-bulletins, please forward them this email and they can subscribe by completing the form at the bottom of the SFT homepage.
