Economic Development & Digital Innovation

The Economic Development unit of FSP aims to address the economic well-being of South Belfast through the collective work of the South Belfast Economic Forum.


Economic development plans and projects are developed and delivered by working collaboratively with businesses and stakeholder groups, promoting business start-up and growth, skills and employability and tourism across South Belfast.  Digital South was launched in 2014, to promote the benefits of a digital career and inspire future talent.


It delivers in partnership with Queen’s University Belfast, community partner Belfast South Community Resources and many new and emerging tech companies an annual event aimed at the digital and creative sectors aimed at year 9-12 pupils and increases their knowledge and understanding of career options in the digital sector.
