Presentation Title: Digital Innovation in Estonian Public Sector and Industry
Event: Innovative Corporate Strategies and ICT Policies in the Era of the 4th Industrial Revolution
Date: 22 June, 2018
Location: Mektory, Tallinn University of Technology
Description: This talk provided an overview of e-Government and digital innovations in the Estonian public sector. Specifically, the talk covered both the technical backbone of Estonian digital government and the contextual information (legal, organizational, societal, etc…) that enabled for digital government to emerge in Estonia. The holistic overview of Estonian e-Government provided participants new knowledge about Estonian digital government innovations and the necessary insights to potentially replicate and implement interesting innovations not yet in use within South Korea.

Presentation Title:Estonian Digital Government and Digital Government Research
Event: Netherlands Ministry of Economic Affairs Study Visit
Date: 22 June, 2018
Location: Ragnar Nurkse Department of Innovation and Governance, Tallinn University of Technology
Description: This talk provided an overview of Estonian digital government from the point of view of the public administration. As the audience was made up of members from the Netherlands’ government, I specifically covered the barriers encountered during Estonia’s digitalization and how they were overcome. Audience members left with a new understanding of e-Government and strategies that could be implemented to help improve e-Government back in the Netherlands.
