Digital Economy and Society Index for Upper Austria

DESI (Digital Economy and Society Index) is an annual index developed by the European Union at the national level to evaluate the digital performance of the member countries. The index allows for a comparison in this performance between countries and a monitoring of the developments over time. Thus, DESI is a proper instrument to guide economic policies related to the digital agenda and to support relevant policy decisions. The aim of this project is the second compilation of a regionalised version of DESI for the Land of Upper Austria as a benchmark for the progress of digital transformation in Upper Austria compared to Austria and the countries of the EU. A first DESI for Upper Austria was presented in 2017.
