Summer School on Secure e-Governance (5 ECTS)
BA and MA students. The summer school offers interoperability between different domains (policy, law, IT, security, design thinking and engineering), therefore the students might benefit from having background of the domains previously mentioned, but it is not mandatory
This interdisciplinary summer programme is for participants with different backgrounds offering interoperability between different domains such as policy, law, IT, security, business, design thinking and engineering.
Estonia is one of the most advanced e-societies in the world- an incredible success story that grew out of a partnership between a forward-thinking government, a pro-active ICT sector and a switched-on, tech-savvy population. Estonia boasts the world’s leading IT infrastructure and e-services. The creation of different e-services as well as linking them to government databases and rising popularity among users has greatly influenced and given an enormous boost to the ICT sector in the country. As the business models and service ecosystems are shifting more into the networked world, both in the private and public sector, there is a strong need to understand the background of e-services from the idealisation to realisation. Hackathon at the end of the course offers students a very practical experience to test their acquired knowledge.
Aim of the course
The idea of the course is to introduce e-Estonia from the government level and to give an overview of how things are rolling in the ICT sector in Estonia, the course also broadens the understanding of the value that e-services could provide for different stakeholders (citizens, public entities and privately held companies etc.) nationwide and internationally. As the business models and service ecosystems are shifting more into the networked world, both in the private and public sector, there is a strong need to understand the background of e-services from the idealization to realization. By the end of the course students will have at the very least pitched one e-service prototype to implement in the future.
The participants will have an understanding of:
- how the public sector implements e-governance and applies service orientation;
- how and why have business models and service ecosystems shifted into the networked world;
- how security and legal frameworks relate to the e-governance;
- what should be considered while designing environments for the public services;
- how to conduct changes and lead change management;
- the background of e-services from the idealisation to realisation;
- (re)designing e-services in the public and private sector.
