Slovenia has made remarkable progress in its digital economy and society, achieving its highest-ever ranking of 11th in the Digital Economy and Society Index (DESI) 2022. It excels in connectivity and the integration of digital technologies like cloud services and artificial intelligence. However, it falls short of the European average in terms of digital skills among its population

To drive further digitalization, Slovenia has developed several strategies and initiatives. These include the Strategy of Digital Transformation of the Economy, the Digital Inclusion Promotion Act, and the National Programme for the Promotion of Development and Use of Artificial Intelligence (PURITY). 

The country also has a comprehensive Digital Public Services Strategy and an overarching national strategy called Digitalna Slovenija 2030, which encompasses principles like research promotion, digital sovereignty, and a democratic digital society. Slovenia's Ministry of Digital Transformation monitors and implements national measures to foster digital transformation across various sectors. 

Moreover, Slovenia encourages women in engineering and supports digital education through projects like the Female Engineer of the Year award and the enhancement of e-content and e-services for educational institutions
