CITIS is dedicated to understanding and improving the way public e-services impact the daily functioning of the state. CITIS focuses on utilizing the autogenerated big data from various Estonian public e-services to estimate the impact those services have economically, politically and socially; on developing new, science-based e-services through the cross-usage of various databases; and on various teaching activities to disseminate these analytical skills.
