Tallinn University of Technology

For the second year in a row, the students of TalTech international joint Master's Program in Public Sector Innovation and E-Governance (PIONEER) were looking for novel solutions for public sector challenges. This year the students’ projects focused on how to develop new ideas for the Tallinn’s latest green infrastructure initiative - the Pollinator Highway (Putukaväil).

The project was developed in collaboration with the Government Innovation Team and City of Tallinn.

The solutions will be introduced on November 24, the seminar is open for all and will be live-streamed on TalTech Facebook.
