Deadline: 2026

Finest Twins is a research and development initiative that has been developed from the doctoral thesis written by Ralf-Martin Soe, a researcher at the Ragnar Nurkse Department of Innovation and Governance. Two countries that have similar cultural backgrounds - Estonia and Finland, are combining forces to create state-of-the-art digital solutions to promote the urban environment. Bringing new technologies and special solutions to the country, the project links scientific research with innovation.

The program will create the first global cross-border smart city centre of excellence in the campus of Tallinn University of Technology (TalTech), with a special focus on five areas of sustainable development: energy, construction, architecture, transport, and data and governance. New technologies will be tested in Estonian cities in 2021. In the preparation phase, the initial start-up support for the project idea came mainly from the Estonian Association of Information Technology and Telecommunications. TalTech received the capital required for the establishment of the Centre of Excellence, a total of 32 million euros, from the Estonian government and Horizon 2020 - the EU Framework Programme for Research and Innovation, which is the largest competitive research grant ever allocated to Estonia.

TalTech, the City of Tallinn, the Estonian Ministry of Economic Affairs and Communications, Aalto University and the Forum Virium Innovation Centre of the City of Helsinki are working closely together to create the centre to be built in Tallinn. Finest Twins project that combines Finnish and Estonian R&D resources and knowledge will last until 2026.

The main goal of the project is to improve residents’ quality of life by introducing innovative technologies and thus make Estonian cities smarter and more sustainable.

IBEP is a project led by Tallinn University of Technology in collaboration with internationally leading counterparts Aalto University, University of Helsinki and Tel Aviv University.

The project aims at generating a better understanding of linkages between individual behaviour and economic performance. Behavioural economics has deepened our understanding of various deviations from rationality in economic performance. Economic outcomes of prevalent individual differences in cognitive capacity and neurophysiology as well as in beliefs and preferences warrant further investigation. Moreover, better designed economic policy and institutions, which take into account that people are different and their wellbeing responds differently to any given policy measures, leads to better utilisation of human capital endowment and enhanced economic performance. The project is a joint effort of economics, finance, practical philosophy and neuroscience scholars, where several internationally highly renowned professors work under a comprehensive set of networking and capacity building activities together with established and early stage researchers in a stimulating multidisciplinary setting.

Several joint doctoral courses and seminars, conferences, summer schools and supervising/advising activities are scheduled in 2020-2023.

With the industrial revolution, technology was introduced to society, creating significant economic benefits to regional and national economies. However, globalisation resulted in European cities losing a large volume of their manufacturing capacity, transitioning into a knowledge economy. As a consequence, manufacturing jobs have decreased and neglected industrial areas have fallen into decay.

The EU-funded CENTRINNO project aims to develop and demonstrate strategies, approaches and solutions for the regeneration of industrial historic sites and areas as creative production and manufacturing hubs that stay true to the ecological challenges of our time. The areas will also boost a diverse, inclusive and innovative urban economy and use heritage as a catalyst for innovation and social inclusion.

The lead partner of the project is Milan; in addition, Spain, the Netherlands, Croatia, Iceland, Italy, Greece, France, Switzerland and Denmark are also participating.

The project aims to study how the media discourses are constructed to foster or hamper the European project and how they resonate among the public by focusing on the elite-media-public triangle.

MEDIATIZED EU starts from two fundamental premises. The first, that the media play a central role in the construction of reality, influencing the way it is politically constituted, closing political dynamics as or more relevant than the formal political processes themselves. The second recognises the existence of multiple Europes and, subsequently, of different narratives of what it means “to be European” and what it means to be “Europe” as a common project. In this sense, MEDIATIZED EU will seek to analyse the representations of the "European project" and the concept and processes of "Europeanisation" conveyed by the media (conventional and digital) in Europe, as well as the perceptions of European public opinion towards these representations. The project will map and analyse the political, social, economic and legal information and misinformation systems, processes and dynamics that build these different representations of the EU in the European media space and understand the ways in which they are appropriated, negotiated, co-opted or contested by public opinion in the different Europes within Europe itself.

With a strong political and communication component, MEDIATIZED EU will generate a panoply of results addressed to various audiences, among others, scientific articles, books and book chapters, policy and good practice recommendations, podcasts, website, op-eds or higher education curricula.

The “Once-Only” Principle Project (TOOP) is an innovation action which explores and demonstrates the implementation of the “once-only” principle on a cross-border scale with the aim to reduce the administrative burden for businesses and public administrations and contribute to the EU digital single market. The “once-only” principle assumes that businesses should provide any information to public bodies only once, and public organisations should share and reuse any data that already exists in public databases. TOOP aims to explore and demonstrate the “once-only” principle (OOP) on a cross-border pan-European scale by developing a generic federated architecture that is able to connect registries and e-government architectures in different countries. This architecture is tested and refined through pilot projects in three domains: 1) cross-border e-services for business mobility; 2) connected company data; 3) online ship and crew certificates. TOOP pilots are unique in their ambition and scale, involving 60 information systems in 20 EU Member States and associated countries. The overall project coordinator is TTÜ Ragnar Nurkse Department of Innovation and Governance (RND). Next to management, RND is involved in the identification of the barriers related to cross-border data exchange, and impact assessment. TTÜ’s Department of Software Science leads the task of IT architecture development.

COSMOLOCALISM will document, analyze, test, evaluate, and create awareness of an emerging mode of production, based on the confluence of the digital commons (e.g., open knowledge and desing) with local manufacturing and automation technologies (from 3D printing and CNC machines to low-tech tools and crafts). This convergence could catalyze the transition to new inclusive and circular production models, such as the "desing global, manufacture local" (DGML) model. COSMOLOCALISM is a pilot-driven investigation of the DGML phenomenon that seeks to understand relevant organizationa models, their evolution, end their broader political economy/ecology and policy implications. Throuhg the lens of diverse case studies and participatory action research, the conditions under which the DGML model thrives will be explred

The aim of research is to analyse the status and development potential of value chains and the use of bioresources to increase the competitiveness of Estonian bioeconomy by taking into account the principles of sustainable development. The mapping of the current state of Estonian bioeconomy is based on the analysis of six value chains: food and feed; cellulose, paper products, products and constructing from wood; textile and clothes; biofuels and bioenergy; biomaterials, chemicals, pharmacy and plastic products; and ecosystem services in bioeconomy. The applicability of the best available technologies to valorise existing bioresources and to develop scenarios for Estonian bioeconomy will be studied. In pre-selected fields, new business models will be developed, and their environmental and socio-economic impact will be analysed. Companies and public sector decision-makers can use the bioeconomy scenarios and business models in their strategic planning and policy making processes. Ragnar Nurkse Department of Innovation and Governance coordinated the activities of scenario building and policy analysis and recommendations

The TROPICO project (Transforming into Open, Innovative and Collaborative Governments) aims to comparatively examine how public administrations are transformed to enhance collaboration in policy design and service delivery, advancing the participation of public, private and societal actors. It will analyse collaboration in and by governments, with a special emphasis on the use of information and communication technologies (ICT), and its consequences. Assessing the institutional conditions and individual drivers and barriers is crucial for understanding the transformation of governments towards greater collaboration. The state structures and administrative traditions provide different 'starting points' of the public sectors in Europe. Likewise, individual attitudes, skills, and expertise of officials play a decisive role in understanding this transformation. Subsequently, TROPICO will examine collaboration practices within governments (internal) and between public, private and societal actors (external), across a variety of policy sectors. The project will address the actors and means of innovative collaboration, including ICT, and how they are interlinked. Lastly, assessing the effects of collaboration for legitimacy, accountability and government efficiency is essential to provide a comprehensive analysis of the transformation towards open, innovative, and collaborative governments. This multidisciplinary project will follow a truly comparative approach, examining ten countries representing the five administrative traditions in Europe: Nordic (Norway, Denmark), Central and Eastern European (Estonia, Hungary), Continental (Netherlands, Germany), Napoleonic (France, Spain; Belgium (mixed)), and Anglo-Saxon (United Kingdom). The project will combine rigorous quantitative and qualitative research methods. TROPICO puts a strong emphasis on the inclusion of stakeholders and users throughout the project to test and reflect upon the applicability of findings and policy recommendations.

Catching-Up along the global value chain: business models, determinants and policy implications in the era of the Fourth Industrial Revolution is a project built on a multidisciplinary and multi-sectorial exchange program focused on unravelling the process of Catching-Up from different sectorial perspectives at a country level. It analyses the role of business models (BMs) in entering, learning and upgrading the Global Value Chain (GVC), aiming at recognising the determinants and challenges faced by Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) in tackling the process of upgrading in a globalising economy. The outcome of the project will be the definition of policy tools and frameworks to support effective policy-making actions in the implementation of Research and Innovation Smart Specialization Strategy (RIS3), with respect to the new agenda of Europe 2020, mainly for low-income EU countries.

In 2015, Estonia launched its e-residency program that gave foreigners the ability to apply for a digital residency in Estonia, even if they don't live in the country. Three years, more than 40,000 people had obtained e- residency. Moreover, these e-residents had established nearly 6,700 companies in Estonia, benefiting from Estonian business-friendly tax laws, access to online payment systems, and so forth. Recently, a small number of academic papers have emerged that discuss the governance and business aspects of e-residency. However, most of the key texts have been authored by civil servants, and there has been a lack of analyses on how the e-residency initiative shapes the broader global political economy. Some of the crucial questions are as follows: How does the proliferation of e- residency program impact the EU-level efforts of international tax cooperation, as well as the concept of economic citizenship that underlies the international tax system? Should the e-residency initiative be seen as a new solution to the governance challenges of the EU's Digital Single Market, or does it rather accelerate international race to the bottom in business regulation? How does the initiative alter the self-perception of both Estonian government and the entrepreneurs that use e-residency? By analyzing the broader political economy of the initiative, the PEER project carries a potential for significant academic and policy-level contributions. Utilizing interviews, textual sources and financial statement analysis, the project focuses both on the governance side of the initiative and its users. The result will be a broad-ranging, inter-disciplinary inquiry into a phenomenon that may have potential to transform the concept of citizenship. The results will have high policy-relevance not only in Estonia, but also within the European Union, as well as in those EU member states that are allegedly considering implementing similar initiatives.

Extending from Eastern Europe to Eastern Asia, from the Caucasus to Central Asia, the post-USSR region, occupying almost one sixth of the world’s territory, has an immense potential for the EU as source of natural resources and potential market for EU companies. In spite of this, the region is often seen as a highly hazardous one to deal with, given its “uncertain business and investment climate with widespread opportunism and corruption, misuse and misappropriation of state assets and conflicting regulation and information flow”. The project is focusing on mapping the problems and finding solutions.
