ECEAP

Estonian Center of Eastern Partnership (ECEAP) was founded in January 2011 by the Estonian School of Diplomacy (ESD) and Estonian Ministry of Foreign Affairs. ECEAP is financed by the Foreing Ministry's Development Cooperation's Fund and supported by the Swedish International Development Agency (SIDA), Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Finland and the European Commission.

Developing e-governance

One of the priorities of ECEAP is the development of e-governance in Eastern Partner (EaP) countries.

Estonia as a champion of Information and Communications Technology as well as e-governance has got vast expertise in these fields and that experience can be applied to advancing public administration in Eastern Partnership countries. One of the main partners of the center in this area is the Estonian e-Governance Academy (e-GA).
