This year, the e-Estonia Briefing Centre is turning 15, and to celebrate it globally, we are looking for digitalisation stories worldwide.
During these 15 years, the centre has hosted over 6000 delegations and an impressive 87,000 guests from more than 130 countries worldwide.
Many of them have resulted in fruitful international collaborations by offering over 800 custom-made events to cater to their need for innovation. We frequently assist and consult other countries with digitalisation initiatives and match them with credible, leading IT partners to empower their efforts and boost innovation and international cooperation.
Of course, Estonia is not shy in sharing our experience of over 20+ years of building our digital nation with the rest of the world, and there are tens and tens of examples of digital solutions built with the help of Estonian experts around the world.
For example, did you know that the Mexican state of Queretaro uses Estonian-built interoperability software, the X-Road, that Roksnet helped them set up? Or that Nortal conducted the first-ever e-Census in the Sultanate of Oman, with 95% data quality.
Or how do you inspire a nation and scale innovation? Assisting in the digital transformation of Ukraine’s public sector is compelling evidence of Estonia, a relatively small nation, excelling significantly in exporting e-governance expertise. Ukraine’s path to digitalisation owes much to Estonia, which has been at the forefront of digital government and served as a model and early adviser to Ukrainian efforts. Even today, more than 30 Estonian advisers are embedded within the Ministry of Digital Transformation.
For our birthday, we are collecting stories. Share with us a spark of inspiration, a start to collaboration, or a lightbulb moment you had after learning about e-Estonia. Let us know your story in the comments or write to us:
