What is the Digital Knowledge Exchange?
The Digital Knowledge Exchange (DKE) business support programme is jointly funded by the European Regional Development Fund Programme 2014-2020, as well as 9 local authorities for Leeds City Region Enterprise Partnership.
As a result of businesses participating in the Digital Knowledge Exchange, businesses will become much more aware of how to use digital channels and solutions to grow their business and will become more confident about making an investment in the most appropriate digital solution/s that support their development goals and aspirations.
