Bristol Digital Futures Institute selects its first fellow

Leadership Instincts

Stephen Hilton, founder, and director of Bristol Futures Global has become Bristol Digital Futures Institute’s first fellow. Stephen brings more than 20 years’ experience in innovation and collaborative research projects to the University’s newest research institute, as well as expertise in developing smart, sustainable and inclusive cities.

Bristol Digital Futures Institute was set up by the University of Bristol in 2019, with £100 million of funding and support from Research England, alongside industry and community partners. The work of the Institute will combine technical and social research to transform the way we create new digital technology for inclusive, prosperous and sustainable societies.

Partners include tech giants BT and Airbus, creative stalwarts BBC and Aardman, and community organisations Babbasa, Knowle West Media Centre and Black South West Network. The Institute will be based at the planned Temple Quarter Enterprise Campus, forecasted to bring £600m of financial and employment benefits to the region over the next 10 years.

Stephen previously worked for Bristol City Council, leading to smart cities, environmental sustainability, urban resilience, and international strategy. He also worked with the University of Bristol to pioneer the Smart City Testbed, a living lab where smart services can be created and tested in a real-world environment.
