e-Estonia programme for the City of Lisboa

A group of people standing, talking
  • Introduction to Estonian e-State

    with e-Estonia Briefing Centre

    Estonians are pathfinders, who have built an efficient, secure and transparent ecosystem that saves time and money. e-Estonia invites you to follow the digital journey. The initial part introduces and demonstrates the underlying mechanisms involved in digitizing a society, an overview of the main challenges and policies, an understanding of the infrastructure, e-solutions and services.


    Estonian Start-up ecosystem

    with Startup Estonia

    Startup Estonia is a governmental initiative aimed to supercharge the Estonian startup ecosystem in order to be the birthplace of many more startup success stories to come. For that, we are working on making Estonia one of the world’s best places for startups, partnering with and uniting the best of startups, incubators, accelerators, private and public sector. Find out what makes Estonia one of the best places on earth to create and run a start-up.


    Building Register digitalisation

    with Tietoevry

    The Estonian Building Register (EHR) is being redeveloped to significantly increase user-friendliness of the procedural environment. Transition from the old system to new one takes place step by step. Services of the current EHR procedural environment will be transfered to the new system and the most important user services related to construction will be replenished

    Project results:

    • User convenience of the main interfaces of EHR procedural environment are significantly increased, the processes optimized and made more transparent.
    • The main functionality of existing services is preserved but developed. Improvements are directed towards increasing usability, mobile platform and sustainability of the new architecture.
    • Electronic procedure of the Data submission notice is created and it is the key for data improvement works.
    • Technologically improved and more future-friendly procedural environment is created for previously described services. This also allows to gradually add new services into the environment in the future.
    • Services which require mobile use are usable on phones.
    • EHR procedural environment is taken to the architecture level micro services and is usable in public and private sector portals through open API.
    • EHR procedural environment automatically starts collecting statistical data on usabilty which can be used for prioritizing further improvement and development needs.


    Digital Twin of Estonia

    with Datel

    Estonia’s nation-wide digital twin, developed in cooperation between public and private sector, will gather data and visualise real-life situations so accurately that, in the future, we will be able to test and work on constructions projects in virtual reality, before putting them into action in real life. And there is certainly much more that the digital twin can achieve.

    Sustainable use of sea and smart port solutions

    with Port of Tallinn

    Port of Tallinn’s ambition is to be the most innovative sea gate on the Baltic Sea. We have set in our strategy a clear goal of establishing environmentally sustainable solutions for ships, passengers and buildings.  The new vacuum automooring equipment was installed on the quays serving the ships at Tallinn-Helsinki route.  Ferries at the Old City harbour can connect with the onshore power systems while standing at the quays  to contribute to cleaner air at the port area and City centre. The Smart Port system featuring automatic licence plate identification and traffic management has been launched for directing vehicles in our harbours. Our brand new cruise terminal is heated and cooled by marine energy by way of a heat pump.  One of the Port of Tallinn’s sustainable development goals is clean Baltic Sea: during the summer period, the marine litter collection system Seabin was installed in the Old City Marina to help collect domestic waste from water.
