A recent EU report highlights the Danish standard for electronic file and document handling and also the F2 solution which is used widely across the Danish public sector.
The EU Commission is working towards European standards for digital public administration and interoperability.
In May 2015 the EU issued a report analysing "Architecture and Solution Building Blocks for e-Documents used in Member States". The aim was to define architecture templates for using e-Documents based on leading best practices found in member states.

The report highlights the Danish standard for electronic file and document handling and also the F2 solution which is used widely across the Danish public sector.
As a fully integrated production platform for digital public administration, F2 enables organisations to genuinely shift to a paperless model, directly supporting government working routines and knowledge production, informal and formal work, collaboration and communication.
The EU report examines the overall F2 metadata model as a practical and widely-used implementation of e-document standards.
Denmark scores #1 in digital economy and society
The Digital Economy and Society Index (DESI) is a composite index that summarises key indicators on Europe’s digital performance.
The DESI index tracks the evolution of EU member states in digital competitiveness, and the index is compiled by the EU Commission as part of the Digital for Europe initiative.

The DESI summary states that the leading European countries are not only ahead in the EU, but are world leaders in digital.
Denmark is #1 overall in the 2015 index as well as #1 in Digital Public Services.
The DESI summarises that digital developments are uneven across the European Union, Digital Public Services being the dimension where performance is most fragmented with a gap of 0.6 between the worst and best performer.
As the Agency for Digitisation puts it – ‘The Danes are now digital, because we had to be’
