The Cambridge Baltic Conference 2016 to focus on technology and governance

The Cambridge Baltic Conference, organised by the Estonian, Latvian and Lithuanian societies of the University of Cambridge, will bring together leaders in politics, science and business with students and young professionals.

Organised since 2013, the annual Cambridge Baltic Conference includes speeches, workshops and presentations along with ample opportunities for networking.

This year, the topic of the conference is titled “Technology and Governance”. The panels of fintech, e-governance, e-health, big data and governance, talent attraction and modern diasporas will explore where technology and governance meet and interweave.

The organisers aim at generating a nexus of ideas that will combine the knowledge, creativity and experience of students, business community, politicians and academics.

Speakers include Theresa Bubbear, the British ambassador to Estonia; Andres Metspalu, the director of the Estonian Genome Centre; Kaspar Korjus, the head of the Estonian e-residency project, and many others.

In addition, two workshops on the legal implications for the fintech industry and on talent attraction to the Baltics will be held.

The conference, held on 12 November, will also be a part of the British Estonian Chamber of Commerce’s trade mission to the UK.
