Signature Projects Under the Danish National Uptake Fund for New Technologies
In 2019 the Government, Local Government Denmark and Danish Regions established an investment fund for new technologies for the period of 2019 – 2022. The fund supports projects using e.g. artificial intelligence (AI) to provide experience with the use of AI in the public sector.
Artificial intelligence offers great opportunities for creating growth, prosperity and world-class public services. From 2020 to 2022, The Danish National Uptake Fund for New Technologies has funded 40 projects, which provide experience with the use of AI in the public sector and knowledge of challenges when using the technology.
The aim of the projects is to provide concrete experience with the use of artificial intelligence in the areas of welfare services, climate impact, and public administration. The technology can for example support workers in the health sector, provide recommendations on how to reduce our energy consumption, or handle administrative tasks more efficiently -thus enabling more time for citizen-centred services.
