24 August 2015
Denmark is the country in Europe which is most open to the use of robots a new EU study shows. This attitude offers great opportunity for healthtech innovation.
The robots are coming - and they are more than welcome in Denmark.
84% of the Danes generally have a positive view of robots according to a new survey conducted for the European Commission. This makes Denmark, along with Sweden, the country in Europe which is most open to the new robot technologies.
A living lab for ICT solutions
Moreover, 88% of the Danes agree that robots are good for society because they can help people. This attitude makes Denmark a highly attractive place to test and introduce new welfare and health technology, also for foreign companies.
"The Danes are early adopters of new technologies, and Denmark has a record-high level of digitisation in the public sector as well as many innovative ICT companies. As a result, Denmark is an ideal living lab for testing new technologies and a very attractive market for introducing new solutions", says Claus Lønborg, CEO, Copenhagen Capacity.
