Co-hosted by the Estonian Presidency of the Council and Norway Grants, CEPS organised the closing conference of the Estonian Presidency on 14 December 2017.

Estonia is synonymous with transparent and efficient e-services – and the Estonian Presidency of the European Council aims to accelerate the adoption of a digital Europe. Since June 2017, Estonia has led negotiations on a series of important digital issues and hosted an extensive range of digital events, culminating in this high level summit in Brussels.

More than 500 participants heard Estonian Prime Minister Jüri Ratas, European Commission Vice President Andrus Ansip and CEPS chairman and former European Commissioner Joaquin Almunia offering a progress report of the presidency. The Norwegian government was also present to explain its exciting Digital North initiative. A total of 15 workshops on a broad range of digital policymaking issues  was held, including exciting private sector keynote speakers led by Microsoft’s John Franks, Index Venture’s Neil Rimer and Skype founder Jaan Tallinn. 

Below are some of the highlights of the event: 

And here are some interesting conversations shared on Twitter that day:
