The Danish Government Digitisation Partnership

Since March, the Danish Government Digitisation Partnership has discussed how Denmark is harnessing and utilising future technological opportunities. The partnership has concluded its work and has just handed over 46 recommendations to the Danish Government, which can be read here.

In March 2021, the Danish Government set up a digitisation partnership for Denmark’s digital future. The Danish Government Digitisation Partnership has contributed knowledge about how Denmark can best exploit the digital transition.

The recommendations are now included as contributions to the Danish Government’s current and emerging strategies and political policy packages related to digitalisation. They can also be used to create a collective digital strategy for Denmark.

The Danish Government Digitisation Partnership has consisted of a chairman, Jim Hagemann Snabe, and 27 permanent members. The members are top-level executives and experts from the Danish business community, the research community, civil society and the social partners, Local Government Denmark, and Danish Regions.
