e-Estonia seminar info:

Named “the most advanced digital society in the world” e-Estonia’s success relies on a clever infrastructure that has made it possible to build a safe e-services ecosystem. An important part of this ecosystem is flexibility and the ability to integrate its different parts while improving e-services and allowing government systems to grow.

At the event, you will get first-hand information from Norwegian and Estonian experts working with Innovation, e-governance, e-health, cyber security, in both public and private sectors. In addition, you will be able to meet and mingle, to discuss your own business case with other participants, who are working to solve the similar challenges, but from different angles.
