The Danish government and the Danish People's Party have allocated DKK 70 m for research in IT and communication technology over the next two years
The Danish government and the Danish People's Party have allocated DKK 70 m (USD 11.9 m) for research in IT and communication technology over the next two years. Two of the particular focus areas will be digital administration and pervasive computing, a field in which Denmark holds a leading position. 
 
Helge Sander, Minister for Science, Technology and Innovation says: "In an international context, Danish research environments and companies have a strong foundation in digital administration and pervasive computing. So we will put money into these fields especially."
 
Prosa, the Association of Computer Professionals in Denmark, was delighted with the news. Mads Kellerman of Prosa comments: "Pervasive computing has enormous business potential which is continuously increasing in line with convergence of technologies. It is also an area where Denmark already has strong research and development environments as well as university training at a high level, putting us at the coalface in terms of exploiting business opportunities."
 
The government has also allocated DKK 18 m (USD 3 m)  for register research, DKK 8 m (USD 1.4 m) for international research networks and DKK 60 m (USD 10.2) for polar research. The news was reported by comon.dk.
