The promise of

Digital government is a propeller for more accountable, effective and inclusive government institutions. Digitalisation thus has enormous potential to improve core government functions, contribute to more efficient and resilient public administration, and enhance citizen-centric services at all levels of government. Digital transformation of government plays a crucial role for the harnessing of society to handle the challenges of today and tomorrow including supporting the green transition and the building of more sustainable societies.

building resilient societies
through digitalisation

What is

We understand GovTech as a whole-of-government approach to public sector modernisation utilising innovative digital technologies to create a simple, efficient, and transparent government with the citizen at the centre.

The pillars of GovTech are vision, strategy and cross-governmental collaboration. And, GovTech is accompanied by a need for investments in digital infrastructure and for digital skills.

Furthermore, GovTech comprises private sector engagement and collaboration. GovTech has the potential to create new opportunities for small and medium-sized tech entreprises.

The challenges
of GovTech

Digitalisation promises better public services and more resilient societies. But, there are no digital quick fixes and no one-size-fits-all solutions.

Turning the promises of digital solutions into tangible, measurable, and consistent outcomes remains challenging in most countries.

Every nation and its historical and cultural context is unique. Ultimately, a country's digital setup will have to reflect its political and administrative structure. There are no simple solutions. But there are common traits. It's about learning from each other across the globe to lift the bar and overcome challenges.

Denmark has throughout its digital journey addressed numerous challenges and is dedicated to share the insights and learnings gained.


We, at Digital Hub Denmark, have taken the learnings from 5 years of planning and hosting international GovTech delegations. And added the input from thought-leaders and practitioners behind some of Denmarks best-in-class digital public solutions. W
e have packaged it and made our experiences and insights available in a bite-size course format — easy to digest, share, and put into action.

Our curriculum covers the five central themes of Danish GovTech success:
