EU4DigitalUA: digital infrastructure, cybersecurity services 2020-2024

2022 - 2024

We already live in a digital world where artificial intelligence is taking its first steps, and digital data streams have a more significant impact on GDP growth than traditional trade in goods. The digitalisation of the public sector is also moving forward. In almost four years of the EU4DigitalUA project, Ukraine has made a significant leap in the digitalisation of public administration, and we are glad to have contributed to this process.

These almost four years, the project worked under unusual circumstances  – first the COVID-19 pandemic and then a full-scale russian invasion. Despite these challenges, the project adapted and provided timely and necessary assistance. In response to the beginning of russia’s full-scale aggression, we contributed to the backup and strengthening of the digital government infrastructure elements, ensuring the operability of the main state registers.

While implementing the EU-supported EU4DigitalUA project over the last four years, the e-Governance Academy team shared Estonia’s experience and best European practices in the e-governance sphere. Over these almost four years, we developed 54 e-services, including unique complex services such as e-Entrepreneur and the e-Residency program – uResidency. Our project developed Ukraine’s public registers and supported the upscaling of the Trembita system. One of the brightest results of the project was the recognition by the European Commission of Ukrainian trust services as compatible with EU standards.

Our achievements were only possible because of strong support and cooperation with our partners and funding from the project donor – the European Union. Special thanks to the Ministry of Digital Transformation of Ukraine and all our partners for their active work, dedication, and leadership in working on Ukraine’s digital transformation. Ukrainian expertise, openness to innovation, and readiness for cooperation have become the foundation for the successful implementation of the project. I invite you to read about these and other achievements of the EU4DigitalUA project in the project’s report.
