Founded in 2002, the e-Governance Academy (eGA) is a non-profit think tank and consultancy organisation: a joint initiative of the Government of Estonia, Open Society Institute (OSI) and the United Nations Development Programme.
We create and transfer knowledge and best practice in the area of digital transformation: e-governance, e-democracy and national cyber security.
eGA can expertly empower your central and local government decision-makers to lead digital transformation programmes to create smart, sustainable and effective e-government, e-democracy and cyber security solutions. We make this happen through consultancy, training, networking, research and assisting you in the implementation of your e-government technical solutions.
e-Governance Academy’s management system for its project management, study visits and consulting services have been independently certified to ISO 9001:2015 standards.We play key roles in e-government and digital transformation policy planning and implementation including the formation of the lead organisations responsible for developing a nation’s interoperability framework and related legal and technical framework development and management.
Most notably, we have delivered digital transformation solutions in transitional societies, especially in Eastern and Central Europe, Asia and Africa. Additional cooperation projects have taken place with EU countries including Austria, Belgium, Faroe Islands (Denmark), Finland, Germany, Greece, Netherlands, Portugal and Spain.
eGA is an Advisory Observer of the Secure Identity Alliance (SIA), the global identity and secure e-services advisory body, a member of Estonian Roundtable for Development Cooperation and a member of the Estonian Network of Estonian Nonprofit Organizations.
We adhere to the Code of ethics of Estonian non-profit organisations.
eGA is audited annually by an internationally accepted audit company, currently KPMG Baltics.
