This morning, all member states of the European Union, together with the European Free Trade Association countries Liechtenstein, Norway, Iceland and Switzerland signed the Tallinn e-Government Declaration.

A co-operative partnership between EU bodies and industry is nothing new in the EU. But an innovative programme such as Data4Safety (D4S) has not happened before. D4S aims at taking advantage of all the innovative digital technologies (such as Big Data & Data Mining) and gathering all relevant safety data in one place. This will give the possibility of identifying and assessing systemic and emerging safety risks in aviation.
Update: The agenda includes items related to environment, digital and transport policy.
In September, more than 3 000 people attended the events of the Estonian Presidency of the Council of the European Union.
