Towards a digital society
Denmark is the most digital society in the World according to the EU's Digital, Economic and Society Index and UN's eGovernment survey 2018.
Denmark's public sector has not rested on its laurels, continously working towards modernization.
Digitalization can be seen as a prerequisite for a welfare society. As a foundation towards a digital society, Denmark introduced the Agency of Digitalization under the Ministry of Finance.
A central driver for national-wide digitalization
Denmark government’s digital ambitions include all levels of government, from central government to regions and municipalities.
This includes both state ministries, agencies, public sector institutions, as well as municipal and regional administrations.
The digitization of the public sector furthermore includes hospitals, schools, universities, etc. For instance, you use your Digital ID to sign up for university and you receive Digital Post from the hospital.
