Our ambition is to make Denmark the most thriving and attractive digital growth environment in Europe.
Digital Hub Denmark works to make Denmark an even better digital playground. The hub will support the digital ecosystem in Denmark by matching private companies, researchers, tech-entrepreneurs, and students in the development of new digital products, services and business models. Digital Hub Denmark connects great ideas with robust experience.
At the same time the hub will work to attract talents and investments to Denmark, and to ensure that the world knows that Denmark is a digital hub. We are more digital than other countries - and we have been digital for a longer time.
Digital Hub Denmark will pursue our vision and support the digital ecosystem through four core elements:
..to match private companies, entrepreneurs, and researchers through company specific challenges
..to support the developments in the field of digital technologies in Denmark and to enhance interdisciplinary research
..to strengthen the commercial use of data and new digital technologies in the development of new services and business models
..to strengthen the awareness of Denmark as an attractive digital growth environment.
Call for expressions of interest
Digital Hub Denmark is offering assistance to Danish businesses in building and enhancing their ability to work with data and artificial intelligence through projects of 6-12 months.
Many businesses struggle to transform data into value. 61% of respondents in a recent survey indicated that there is high potential to utilise data more and in better ways.
Therefore, Digital Hub Denmark is launching a new initiative to strengthen participating businesses capabilities in working with both internal and external data, including public datasets.
Digital Hub Denmark's contribution
The initiative is targeted towards companies willing to invest in their skillset within data and AI, thereby making them digital frontrunners within their industry. Digital Hub Denmark can contribute with up to 50% of the total allocated resources, probably up to 250.000 DKK but in some cases potentially up to 500.000 DKK. Digital Hub Denmark can also facilitate collaboration with external teams of experts within data and AI who can assist in the project process.
The company's contribution
The company must contribute with a minimum of 50% of the total allocated resources in the project.
The contribution can be internal hours to e.g. build new prototypes or products utilising artificial intelligence. Internal resources are billed at 750 DKK/hour.
For the full project description, please see the document below.
To express interest, please fill out this form and Digital Hub Denmark will contact you.
Data is at the centre of new digital business models. Therefore Digital Hub Denmark works to support companies and start-ups that wish to get access to public data.
The document below is a grassroots approach to make data available. It contains information on public datasets which are currently available, with a focus on those which are available through APIs. We invite you to co-create the document by adding more data sources.
We hope the document will be useful to you and that you will help us make it even better.
WHY DIGITAL HUB DENMARK?
Technologies like Artificial Intelligence, Big Data and Internet of Things are evolving quickly these years and it calls for ambitious efforts if Denmark is to realise the vision of becoming a digital frontrunner in Europe.
Private companies and talents are – among other things – drawn by an attractive digital growth environment, where new and value-creating solutions are developed and where new digital start-ups can emerge and succeed. The goal of Digital Hub Denmark is to support and strengthen the digital growth environment in Denmark and to strengthen collaboration across private companies, researchers, and tech-entrepreneurs.
Digital Hub Denmark is a public-private partnership between the Danish Government, the Confederation of Danish Industry, the Danish Chamber of Commerce and Finance Denmark.
