Digital Society Committee (transformed in 2019 from the Intellectual Property Rights Committee)

In 2009, AmCham established a Committee for Intellectual Property Rights (IPR) in order to respond to members’ needs. The main goal of this Committee was to lobby for IPR protection and provide leadership that would bring together interested partners, as well as share information with decision makers and law enforcement.

In 2019, it was decided to transform the existing IPR committee into the Digital Society Committee in order to cover the topics of the critical importance of the grown Amcham network. The aim of the DS committee is to take a bigger picture of the strategy of Estonia as a Digital Society, with long-term benefits in the form of competitiveness, growth, creation of jobs, innovation, and modern society.

The DS Committee is planning to tackle the following topics:

  • Data Protection and e-Privacy (GDPR)
  • Emerging Technologies (AI, 5G, etc.)
  • Cyber Security and Online Safety
  • Technology Transfer & IPR
  • Digital Single Market and the Future of Work
  • E-Commerce

more topics could be added as we will be shaping the new committee
