e-Annual Report enables entrepreneurs in Estonia to submit annual reports via the e-reporting environment of the Central Commercial Registry. About 99% of more than 120,000 companies registered in Estonia use this new method of reporting. Its uniformity makes the entry and submission of data significantly more convenient for companies, as there is only one place and specific channel to submit all required data. Companies do not have to submit data to public authorities more than once, as the data reported is retrievable from the central system by all other relevant databases (statistics, tax office, banks, etc.) leading to less red tape for all. The processing of business data has become significantly quicker and easier, as the data can be processed immediately and is accessible to interested parties both in the private and public sectors. The e-government system used in Estonia has created more transparent, efficient, convenient and trustworthy relations between citizens and government agencies. e-Annual Report uses the internationally recognized XBRL standard, meets all WCAG requirements and responds to AAA level, thus anticipating the European Digital Agenda 2020.
The World of the Habsburgs is a virtual exhibition in a multimedia presentation. In addition to the representatives of the dynasty, the virtual exhibition spotlights the political history and the general social developments of the Habsburg era. The website draws a colourful picture of the world of the Habsburgs from the 13th until the early 20th century, going far beyond any similar presentations, whether text or other media, of virtual historical exhibitions. The World of the Habsburgs links the exhibits through topics and key issues, thus assembles storylines, objects and texts like a museum exhibition, accompanied by multimedia presentation of texts, maps, a genealogical table and a navigable timeline opening up completely new contexts and connections. In all, there are more than 500 chapter modules contained within about 100 key topics and over 1,400 images or exhibits, including objects that are never on public view. Despite the enormous archives, The World of the Habsburgs is neither a Wikipedia nor an encyclopaedia. It is a virtual exhibition with an innovative user interface that turns exploration of history per mouse-click into a unique pleasure. Moreover, www.habsburger.net casts light with a critical slant on the current status of research on the history of the Habsburgs and their epoch.

EPI Life is the world's first mobile phone with integrated ECG (electrocardiogram) and health monitoring functions. It allows users to record their ECG simply by touching the sides of the phone with their fingers, eliminating the need for complicated electrodes or messy gels. EPI Life also allows the user to input key health parameters such as Blood Glucose, Blood Pressure and Cholesterol, and to transmit these data to their online Personal Health Folder, which can be accessed by the user via internet. ECGs are sent to EPI’s 24-hour Health Concierge from the device via GPRS, where qualified doctors and cardiac technicians compare the ECG against the user’s baseline ECG, and respond via SMS based on the results of the comparison. EPI Life, coupled with the 24-hour Health Concierge and online Personal Health Folder, offers remote health monitoring, allowing the end-user to have timely feedback on their heart condition anytime, anywhere. The ability to detect heart rhythm abnormalities at the point of symptom/discomfort mean that ‘warning signs’ that may result in a fatal cardiac event will never be left unnoticed. Timely feedback on the ECGs sent also means that users are able to make informed decisions on their next course of action, be it visiting the hospital emergency department or the nearest 24-hour clinic. The highly scalable technology allows medical coverage to be extended into remote areas which have little or no access to medical services, making it perfect for rural health programs. EPI Life has won countless national and international awards.

Redress Remix is an award-winning project comprised of a 3-part documentary series and an interactive living documentary. Redress Remix tackles one of the most controversial Canadian government decisions in recent years: the official 2006 apology to the Chinese Canadian community for the Head Tax and Exclusion Act of 1923. The documentary film uses a unique approach that includes animation techniques, newly composed music and testimonial interviews, to reveal to audiences the events that shaped the Redress movement and led to the official Government apology and its influence on a new generation of Chinese Canadians. The interactive web project, developed in conjunction with the film, allows Canadians to contribute to the national dialogue on the issue through a ground-breaking ‘living documentary’ experience. Users are invited to explore 180º panoramas featuring subjects from the film who represent a certain theme related to the Redress movement. The panoramas offer information about the subject, the theme, and a thematic video featuring repurposed documentary footage. Redress Remix invites the user to respond to what they have learned by turning on their webcam and becoming a part of the discussion.
