It is a mistake to believe that digital and society are not intertwined. There are no longer any boundaries between the way we live, work, and play and the digital environment that surrounds us. This is perhaps why the Nordics are leaders in many indicators on digital: they focus on using digital to create policies and environments that work for and support their populations.
Connectivity and digital skills are high across the region as digital is seen as a trusted enabler of economic and social progress. Added to this, the Nordics are known for their political stability and high levels of security and equality.
From this solid foundation there is space to innovate and grow. To accelerate this process, I believe the Nordics should continue to focus on protecting society and their way of life and focus on the following key areas:
Maintaining these pillars of Nordics values will have a positive ripple impact on innovation. The Nordics is a region that, due to its high quality of living, will encourage and retain talent. It is also becoming a hub for start-ups and venture capitalist investment with many well-known companies originating from the region.
“Denmark together with the other Nordic countries have a unique opportunity to become or rather continue to be frontrunners in innovating, developing, and utilizing new digital solutions. As pointed out by Atos our shared focus in the Nordics on trust, equality, and the green transition as well as our tradition for working together are a great foundation to build upon.”
