From its inception, DIGITS has highlighted the importance of partnerships working both internally across the university and externally with local, national and international organisations and communities.  The projects that DIGITS engages in depend greatly on partnerships. Not only do they help address issues from various perspectives, for example, governmental, industry and community, but it also allows for greater geographical coverage to help tackle issues that may be similar over various countries.
