Estonia introduced the Smart Connectivity vision on the Three Seas Virtual Summit in Tallinn. It represents an additional contribution on Estonia’s part to help find ways of making more effective use of infrastructure.
The overall vision of Smart Connectivity is to expand digital components across key infrastructure, which will in turn support new business models and technologies. It is about making investments in energy and transport future-proof.
The aim of Smart Connectivity is to establish a growth platform for innovative services and to support economic growth based on innovation. This could ultimately lead, for example, to the automatisation of road transport and the smart transformation of electricity networks, allowing consumers to simultaneously play the roles of energy consumer, producer and saver. In order to realise this ambitious vision, the same principles will need to be observed throughout the Three Seas region when constructing transport and energy infrastructure and there will need to be a greater focus on the open exchange of data and the use of data that have been amassed.
