Online conference experience

The Conference will provide you with the four days of engaging and evolving conference experience! Each day we will roll out new session, expert opinions and examples from various countries.

You can choose the sessions that are most interesting to you and follow them when you like. All sessions will culminate with two real-time interactive debates with keynote speakers to answer all your questions online. Each of the sessions will have conclusions and way forward executive summaries. Moreover, we are glad to welcome you during the Conference at the Virtual Expo with different side tracks!

This year’s conference celebrates the 50th anniversary of the first walk on the moon by humans, Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin. As we know, this giant leap for humankind started with small steps: research, meetings, programming, technology development etc. The same principle applies to digital transformation and e-governance development.

Achieving long term goals with continuous innovation that utilises smaller projects based on common principles will be one of the key learning and sharing objectives of the e-Governance Conference 2020.

Join us on the journey to the next decade of digital transformation at egovconference.ee!
