New digital strategy for Scotland

Hi all,

As many of you will have seen, a consultation has recently been launched on a new Digital Strategy for Scotland.

The consultation paper has been published on, and you can take part in the online consultation here.

As part of this exercise, we are looking to host a discussion looking at the renewal of this strategy through an Open Government lens, exploring what the strategy means for openness in Digital, and how we can link this into our next Open Government Action Plan.

If you’d be interested in taking part in this discussion, please comment below or drop me an email. We’ll be looking to hold this conversation within the next 2 months, and of course, virtually.

Thanks, and have a great weekend,

Just popping on to share the attached letter from Colin Cook, Director for Digital at the Scottish Government, inviting you to take part in the formal written consultation on the New Digital Strategy for Scotland.
