EIF is glad to share that a record number of applications were received for our projects' funding round. The planned activities and their target groups are very diverse, and we are happy to note that, in addition to young people, the necessary skills are increasingly being developed among the elderly as well. Several activities also tackle different aspects of AI and novel technologies.

The Rõngu Public House project "Digital Self-Defense" develops cyber security-related knowledge among the members of the local community i.e students, teachers, parents and the elderly. Within the project, a training program will be created in order to share knowledge about how to act consciously and safely in the digital space. The program culminates with a grand final seminar.

The project of Haabersti High School also deals with the development of skills related to Internet security. The school has recently mapped the problems related to digital environments that students encounter in their daily lives. Accordingly, a program of various trainings and workshops has been prepared in order to explain the risks and hidden dangers of the Internet, as well as data protection and digital privacy.

Poco SA's project "Safely with Artificial Intelligence" introduces students to the variety of possibilities offered by artificial intelligence. It's clear that AI is already changing the way we live, work and communicate - so it's important to prepare young people to collaborate with it. The framework of the project includes both learning sessions and practical exercises to introduce and study the different AI tools.

Kose Gymnasium brings the Scratch Olympiad to Estonia. It is a programming olympiad that develops the creative programming skills of young people. Using Scratch platform in promoting programming, the school aims to increase the interest in the field. With the future olympiad, the Kose Gymnasium will bring together future developers and innovators.

The NGO Kostivere Interest Center also helps develop future innovators within the framework of the Valma Adventure Camp. It is a conceptual continuation of the project that took place last year, where secure internet communication will be discussed together with a practical Mafia game with internet evil characters. Inspiration and experiences are also shared by the representatives of Estonian start-up companies.

Kivivere School will organize a conference and workshops in order to raise IT awareness amongst the students. The topics will include artificial intelligence, cybersecurity and skills that will help students to contribute to digital content creation. The project has an important place in the integration of different subjects in order to show the importance of IT knowledge in all areas of life.

Kurtna School undertakes the organization of the Internet Week. The target group of the event is both school students and teachers with the goal of promoting knowledge related to cyber security in the local community. The school also hopes to reduce cyberbullying.

The NGO Digitarkus mitigates the digital divide in society by offering digital counseling suitable for the needs of the elderly. For this purpose, relevant trainings and materials have been created that teach the elderly to use various everyday digital services. In this way, the well-being of the project's target group and independence in the digital world will be increased.

The Council of EIF decided to grant funds in the total amount of EUR 50,000. The project grants are financed from the proceeds from the .ee domain auctions.
