Research in Estonia

Estonian Research Council carries out international marketing activities under the initiative called Research in Estonia. Its main aim is to introduce Estonian research on an international level and for international audience. The main target groups are researchers coming from abroad, international journalists, R&D administrators and delegates.

The goals of Research in Estonia marketing activities are:

  • to support the image of Estonia as an attractive science based country,
  • to ensure that the information about Estonian research is up-to-date and accessible for foreigners and
  • through communicating success stories to support the awareness of the Estonian R&D results and cooperation between researchers, companies in smart specialization fields.

Some of the Research in Estonia activities include: introducing Estonian research to local international students (“Science Visits”); introducing Estonian research to international science journalists and other interest groups (“Study Trips for Science Journalists”); taking part of international exhibitions (e.g. EuroScience Open Forum). Research in Estonia produces central materials that introduce Estonian research (in English) – brochures, leaflets, audio-visual materials etc and makes the materials available to the interested parties/partners. Additionally, the initiative has a journalist working for Research in Estonia portal to assure up-to-date news feed on webpage. Moreover, it cooperates with Enterprise Estonia magazine “Life in Estonia”, Air Baltic’s flight magazine “Baltic Outlook” and online magazine “Estonian World” to bring research news to a broader readership.

The Research in Estonia portal offers information and news for professionals, scholars, and students interested in research opportunities in Estonia. Visit the page to get an overview of Estonian research news, an insight into public R&D institutions and get information about funding opportunities.
