It brings together some of the internationally most renowned scholars of innovation and governance – Carlota Perez, Erik. S Reinert, Wolfgang Drechsler, Jan A.

The key focus of the programme is on understanding digital technologies as the key driver of public and private sector developments across the world, and how to make sure that digitization brings about sustainable and green growth and development.
The first year of the program is offered in Estonia, one of the most dynamic and innovation-savvy countries of the world, the home of Skype, and a country building tools for borderless digital societies and states. Studying in Estonia offers unique insights in what the future might look like and how to prepare for succeeding in it.
