Estonia, or better “E-stonia”, is, according to the American monthly magazine Wired “the world’s most digitally advanced society”. As stated by the European Commission, the Baltic country “is the champion in Europe in the online provision of public services, and scores above EU average in digital skills and the use of Internet by citizens”.
At the beginning of July, Estonia took the Presidency of the Council of the European Union claiming that it can help to bridge digital divides among member states and contribute to the bloc’s cyberdefense.
How did Estonia turn into a digital pioneer and how could its model be implemented at European level?
We will have the pleasure to discuss about this with MEP Kaja Kallas, who has been rapporteur on the report on “Towards a Digital Single Market Act”, during our traditional Thursday breakfast, on October 26.
This event is part of the “Days of Estonia”, a three-day initiative organised with the Permanent Representation of Estonia to the Council of Europe to promote the political engagement, the history and the culture of the country holding the Presidency of the Council of the European Union.
