Defining digital excellence
In 2019, the Swedish Government has tasked the Swedish Higher Education Authority (UKÄ) and the Swedish Agency for Economic and Regional Growth (Tillväxtverket) to collaborate in analysing and proposing how access to cutting-edge digital expertise can be ensured both in the short term and long term. As part of the assignment the term ”cuttin-edge digital expertise” was to be defined. Four researchers at KTH and Uppsala University got the task.

Cutting edge competency in digitalisation and the development of future technological systems and solutions is vital to the sustainable development of a high-technology society. Digital excellence provides citizens to navigate future digital systems, empowering them with the agency and ability to not only consume, but also create digital content. Focus on equipping citizens for a techno-logical world future is one thing, however; developing the national and global competence needed to fuel worldwide transformation has received limited attention.
