The Estonian Education and Research Network (EENet) was established in August 1993 as a governmental non-profit organization. From 1997 until April 2013 EENet operated as a state agency administered by the Estonian Ministry of Education and Research.
In April, 2013 EENet was transferred to the Hariduse Infotehnoloogia Sihtasutus (HITSA; Information Technology Foundation for Education) with all rights of representation in international organisations.
On 1 August 2020 the Ministry of Education and Research of Estonia and HITSA transferred all HITSA's rights and obligations (including contracts and the whole EENet) to the Haridus- ja Noorteamet (Harno), in English Education and Youth Authority. HITSA itself was liquidated.
On 1 January 2021 the name of Haridus- ja Noorteamet in English was changed to the Education and Youth Board.
The mission of EENet is to provide a high-quality national network infrastructure for Estonia’s research, educational and cultural communities. Its services include permanent Internet connections, eduroam, DNS, user support for several information systems of education etc
