Estonian Research Infrastructures Roadmap

The aim of the Estonian Research Council is to compile and periodically (every 3-4 years) update the Estonian Research Infrastructures Roadmap, which contains a list of new nationally important research infrastructure units, or of those in need of modernisation. The roadmap is an input to the investment decisions regarding research infrastructures. In addition, it is the task of the Estonian Research Council to coordinate the preparation and implementation of the roadmap objects and other large research infrastructures objects, and to monitor the realisation of the infrastructure objects.

The list of objects included in the Estonian Research Infrastructures Roadmap was approved by Government Order No 43 of 14. February 2019 as Updated Supplement to the Implementation Plan for the Estonian Research, Development and Innovation Strategy 2014-2020 “Knowledge-Based Estonia”.
