Jaan Reinhold, Director Estonian Center of Eastern Partnership


The Estonian Center of Eastern Partnership appreciated the opportunity to cooperate with the e-Governance Academy in organising the e-Partnership Conference which united priorities important to both of us – the digital field and the Eastern Partnership. The overview which was compiled as a basis for the inaugural conference provided an adequate and comprehensive analysis of the cyber security and e-democracy situation in the Eastern Partnership countries. I would especially like to highlight the competence and methodological approach of the e-Governance Academy experts in creating the situation review which included dozens of interviews with high-level experts and decisionmakers, based on which the data were systemised and analysed. Moreover, I particularly value the recommendations that were emphasised in the overview and which act as a map to further develop the digital field in the Eastern Partnership countries.

We thank e-Governance Academy for crucial consultation in implementing the X-Road based and full-functioning interoperability solution Nam-Road, and hope that Namibia will be a good example to follow for other African countries.

e-Governance Academy was very flexible and cooperative during the EU Twinning project. EGA mediated experts with up-to-date knowledge, who introduced us European best practices in e-governance development and stakeholder involvement. Furthermore, DEA also received useful consultation to amend Georgia’s e-governance laws according to European Union’s legislation. Twinning proved to be a successful combination of Estonian experts knowledge with Georgian beneficiary’s readiness to adopt e-government strategic, legal and interoperability frameworks compatible with EU systems.

Estonia has realized the possibilities of having a connected and integrated system that is efficient and effective. Being able to collect, analyze and act on real-time data is key for making informed decisions. Estonia’s citizens are some of the best-connected in the world, which gives them access to information that can help improve their lives. During my visit I was most impressed by their public/private partnerships – at UNICEF, we are always exploring new ways of working with the private sector to use data to help children.

e-Governance is the future and the future is today!  For the people who are actually involved in the process of e-governance development, it is extremely important to have the ability to share experience and best practices with each other.  In this regard we are strongly tied with e-Governance Academy of Estonia and we enjoy this practice.  Their comprehensive expertise in e-Governance issues helps us to find new ways to make e-Governance an usual tool for everyday life.

In an ever-changing world Estonia sets the example of creating a society where the government supports its citizens and entrepreneurs with the most modern and efficient services. The e-Governance Academy brings leadership, ICT and new ways of democracy together. They are mainly responsible for an open government where transparency, effectiveness and change are the foundation of a healthy society that is at the beginning of a prosperous future. Estonia shows that a small country can achieve big results with the right mindset and the true innovation is always welcomed here.

Good examples deserve to be followed. We’ve learnt a lot from the e-Governance Academy about making society and governance more open and more effective.

We have to keep adding chapters to the success story of Estonia’s e-state, contributing to the understanding of the digitalised society and to analysing the problems and opportunities it presents. Championing this cause is the e-Governance Academy, which as a centre is shaping a new way of thinking in terms of how society as a whole is changing in the digital age.
