Project Details


AI Denmark inspires and helps SMEs get started faster with the use of data and AI tools in their digital transformation process. Our goal is to make digitization and artificial intelligence practical and easy to understand. We support SMEs in getting started quickly using data and AI tools in their digital transformation process.

AI Denmark takes 120 SMEs on a 6-month development journey and helps them use data to gain a competitive edge. The focal point is tailor-made and company-oriented AI pilot projects in combination with workshops focusing on the utilization of concrete AI technologies and organizational change processes in the implementation of AI.

In addition, AI Denmark contributes to the development of a national AI community consisting of best-practice cases, an online learning platform, an AI community and the holding of Danish AI Awards.

We work with approx. 40 companies each year. Most of the companies are not digital frontrunners, but we help them in getting there.

The project is financed by the Danish Industrial Foundation with DKK 34.5 million. DKK and runs over three years.

The partners are: Department of Technology, Alexandra Institute, Aalborg University, Technical University of Denmark, University of Copenhagen and IT University.
