Estonia

Crossing the Estonianborder from Russia, an external EU border was once a time-consuming, unsure wrangle lasting days and resulting in bribery, illegal sale of spots in the queue, pollution, traffic safety issues and losses for freight carriers. Since implementation of the GoSwift project, shorter waiting times and the elimination of physical lineups have resulted in an end to the illegal sale of places in line, better security and less waste problems at the border. By allocating a specific time and date for the applicant to cross the border online, GoSwift has created minimum waiting, cleaner surroundings near border crossing points and considerably more movement of cars and trucks due to online efficiency. Using the GoSwift system, trucks and cars can now drive to the border just before the registered border crossing time. Drivers can wait at designated waiting areas where toilets, showers, dining areas, and free WIFI are available, proceeding as scheduled to cross the border easily and on time. As a Private Public Partnership project, the system saves Estonian transport companies four million Euros a year.

Lobbyplag is a discovery and mapping tool for the interference of lobbyists with lawmaking. Lobbyplag.eu is a citizens discovery platform for the lawmaking process. Using a crowdsourced process, change proposals made by lobbying groups are mapped to actual changes in the text of upcoming legislation - and to the lawmakers who propose them. As Wired UK says about us: “LobbyPlag is designed to get the word out, get the public thinking about who writes laws that will remain for decades (and how), and to encourage the public to help out with the mammoth task of analysing more documents for comparisons. (...) LobbyPlag is there to help avoid any bad choices being made that will be permanently be written into the word of the law.”
