THE 3 SEAS DIGITAL HIGHWAY
ABOUT THE THREE SEAS INITIATIVE:

The Three Seas Initiative (3SI) is an intergovernmental political and economic project developed and launched by the Polish President, Andrzej Duda, with the Former President of Croatia (2015-2020), Kolinda Grabar-Kitarović, in 2016. It was oriented towards boosting cooperation and interconnectivity between the 12 CEE countries which are located between three seas, meaning the Baltic, Adriatic and Black Sea, with the focus on transportation, telecommunication and energy sectors.
ABOUT THE DIGITAL 3 SEAS INITIATIVE:

Drawing upon the Three Seas Initiative, the Kosciuszko Institute launched in 2018 the Digital 3 Seas Initiative which proposes solutions to tackle technology and cybersecurity within this international framework. It is a portfolio of cross-border projects that aim to develop digital infrastructure, joint investments and R&D, as well as political and legislative concepts to implement at the EU level.

    The Digital 3 Seas Initiative has two main goals:
  • Enhance cooperation within the digital pillar of the 3SI;
  • Make sure that cybersecurity is established as a prerequisite for all work undertaken in the projects deployed within three pillars.

ABOUT THE 3 SEAS DIGITAL HIGHWAY

The 3 Seas Digital Highway is one of the most important projects put forward by the Digital 3 Seas Initiative. Its aim is to develop a secure digital infrastructure running from North to South, interlinking member states and composed of two elements: optical fibre along with technologies which help create a 5G connection between the countries. The true success came when the Ministry of Digital Affairs of Poland, together with Chancellery of the President of the Republic of Poland, officially submitted this project during the Three Seas Summit in Bucharest in September 2018 where it was accepted and put on the list of “priority interconnection projects”.
