    “Idea Garage: e-Justice” will bring together people from many different professions, such as lawyers, notaries, judges, officials of the EU institutions, government officials, IT-specialists, entrepreneurs, visionaries/project managers and much more. What might be a daunting task alone, can be often done easily together.

    The event will be a part of the e-Justice conference, taking place at Tallinn Creative Hub (Kultuurikatel) and running simultaneously with Idea Garage. “Idea Garage: e-Justice” is organized in cooperation with Estonian Ministry of Justice, CIVITTA Estonia and Estonian Information System Authority.

    The main goal of the “Idea Garage: e-Justice” is to find solutions to some of the existing challenges in the e-Justice system, using ICT solutions. We want to show that by including the know-how of IT specialists in the very early stage of problem-solving in the e-justice system can make great things happen. Over the two days of intense brainstorming, hacking, networking and mentoring initial ideas will be turned into clickable prototypes.
