Denmark is world champion in digital readiness: study
Overall, however, Denmark ranks fourth, due in part to a shortage of talent. The Confederation of Danish Industry (Dansk Industri, DI) says this is cause for concern. The overall winner is the United States, followed by Singapore and Sweden. “We need to be better at telling the rest of the world that we’re part of the global elite so we can ensure that the best heads and most innovative businesses are increasingly drawn to Denmark,” DI director Lars Frelle-Petersen said. Despite Denmark’s impressive ranking, the study also sets off several alarm bells. Denmark is only 44th in the world when it comes to graduates in science, and only 18th when it comes to attracting foreign specialists. The study also shows that Denmark ranks only 46th in the world when it comes to listing IT companies.
