Personal and post-doctoral research funding

Personal research funding means funding or for a high level research and development project of a person or a research group working in a research and development institution.

 

Personal research funding comprises three categories of grants corresponding to different levels of research career:

A postdoctoral research grant is a grant to support launching a research career of persons with a doctoral degree or equivalent qualification at strong research and development institutions or high level research groups. There are two types of postdoctoral grants:

  • a grant for a postdoctoral researcher coming to Estonia;
  • a grant for a postdoctoral researcher going abroad.

 

A start-up research grant is a grant to support the researchers with initial research experience to launch independent research career at an Estonian R&D institution, to set up their research group and to contribute to furthering the next generation (incl doctoral candidates) of researchers.

 

A team grant is a grant to support researchers in continuing their research career at an Estonian R&D institution, ensuring high level research, leading a strong research group and furthering the next generation (incl doctoral candidates) of researchers.
