UKC3 Cyber Cluster Organisation Survey 2023-24

29 Jan 2024

The Department for Science, Innovation and Technology (DSIT) has commissioned Ecorys UK and Perspective Economics to conduct an evaluation of the UK Cyber Cluster Collaboration (UKC3) Programme to measure its impact and inform future interventions.

This evaluation covers the current financial year, from April 2023 to March 2024. It will aim to understand how effective the UKC3 Programme is in supporting clusters, how clusters are using the funding, and to gain insight into cluster governance structure.

As part of the evaluation of the UKC3 programme, we would like to invite Cyber Cluster member organisations (anyone involved with cyber cluster activity) to participate in this survey.

You might already know that your cluster is a recognised cluster through UKC3. UKC3 funds and supports regional Cyber Clusters and encourages greater collaboration across regions and nations of the UK. There are currently 15 UKC3 recognised clusters in the UK. You can read more about UKC3 here:

The survey will ask you about your awareness, involvement and engagement with the UKC3 Programme. The data collected here will inform our understanding of who is benefiting from the Clusters and the UKC3 Programme, as well as inform the feasibility of an impact assessment of the programme in the future.

Taking part in this evaluation is completely voluntary. Your input here is vital to understanding the impact of the clusters and in informing DSIT of the effectiveness of the programme.

This survey does not ask for any personal data (e.g., names, contact details). The only data we are collecting as part of this survey will be your survey responses. The survey does include some open text questions. If you choose to disclose any information that could identify you as part of these, we will remove this from the dataset before sharing any data with DSIT.



Do you have a question about the cyber cluster and how we can accelerate your business regionally and internationally? Please get in touch and one of the cluster advisors will respond as soon as possible.
