About the Innovation Award 

As a means to highlight innovation in Estonia – and the collaboration between the U.S. and Estonia toward this end – Baltic American Freedom Foundation (BAFF)and the American Chamber of Commerce in Estonia (AmCham) with the support of the U.S. Embassy in Tallinn have established an Estonian-American Innovation Award for an Estonian individual, organization or firm that has developed an innovation in cooperation with a U.S. partner.

Selection Committee 

The panel for determining the winners is comprised of one representative each from the U.S. Embassy, AmCham and BAFF, plus last year’s winner and additional members chosen to represent Estonian society more broadly.
