Taltech (PP8) organized the meeting in Tallinn, Estonia 29.01.2020 and it lasted around 3 hours with one lunch break in between.


Aim of this meeting was to gather information through brainstorm about different problems that Estonia is facing in silver economy eco-system and what could be possible solutions to improve the overall situation.


The 12 participants represented different views. We had one member from the ministry of social affairs, one member of Estonian Pensioners’ association, most of them represented academic views but because their field of research is so different it gave us good input.


The workshop had good results- we worked in two groups and both of the groups had a very different approach to the questions. We used the post-it method so that through brainstorm we got around 40 different keywords and then representatives from both groups presented what they had discussed. Through that, we found out that there are 10 main questions that we need to look into, choose the most relevant ones and go on with them in the next workshop.

Taltech (PP8) organized the Second workshop on Knowledge Management model making in Tallinn, Estonia on 17.02.2020 and it lasted fairly around 3 hours with one coffee/lunch break in between.


Aim of this workshop was to start analyzing problems found from the first regional workshop to understand how Knowledge is collected (detected), how knowledge is organized and assessed, how it is created and transformed. We mainly focused on 4 different problems relevant to Estonian RIS3 priorities.


In this workshop, we had 18 participants and we were working in one group where two moderators were organizing the workshop. They were collecting expert ideas and added information to the big whiteboard made of big papers. Having different academics, experts who are working with local municipalities and also for government and representatives from the senior population (member from Estonian Pensioners’ association) gave us very wide results and discussion on the problems.


The workshop focused mainly on the problems facing how knowledge is captured, organised, created and transformed in Estonia. Also which quardo-helix actor(s) is (are) responsible for each question what raised up through workshop. The workshop was smooth and had a very active discussion session.
