In November 2021, the European Commission published the new edition of its annual report on the digital economy and society, the Digital Economy and Society Index (DESI).
In 2021, the European Commission adjusted DESI in order to align the index with the four main axes and the objectives of the “digital compass”, to improve the methodology and to take into account the latest technological and political developments.
The overall DESI 2021 ranking is led by Denmark (score of 70.1/100) ahead of Finland (67.1), Sweden (66.1), the Netherlands (65.1) and Ireland (60.3). Luxembourg ranks 8th (59.0), Germany 11th (54.1), Belgium 12th (53.7) and France 15th (50.6).
Luxembourg performs very well on Connectivity, ranking 4th in the EU. Luxembourg compares well in Human capital. It is also above the EU average score on Integration of digital technology.
