Welcome to the Swedish National Digitalisation Council

Sweden has an objective to be the best in the world at utilising the opportunities created by digitisation. For this reason, the government established the Swedish national digitalisation council in spring 2017.

The national council’s undertaking is to promote the implementation of the government’s digitalisation strategy. It consists of leading experts from universities, private and public sector and one office under the leadership of Minister for Digital Development.

The objective of the government’s digitalisation strategy is that Sweden shall be the best in the world at utilising the opportunities created by digitalisation. The strategy is based on five interim objectives: digital competence, digital innovation, digital security, digital infrastructure and digital management.


Why a Swedish National Digitalisation Council?

The government needs independent experts to:

  • Analyse/follow – understand and indentify the challenges associated with digital development
  • Promote - promote digitalisation based on the goal of the strategy
  • Propose - suggest recommendations
