Switzerland’s digital future will depend on a complex confluence of several interrelated factors.
Citizens, policy makers, and entrepreneurs at the local and global level, all play import
ant roles. What we have aimed to do in this report is focus on five current trends in digitalization: digital
infrastructure, startup ecosystems, data governance, the digitalization of the public sector, and
societal trends, and identify Switzerland’s strengths and weaknesses compared to other countries
in the world. Based on our research and a series of interviews we conducted with experts, we
crafted a number of recommendations that would help Switzerland become a world leader (where
it is not already) and continue to grow in areas where it is already well established.
