Support for Research Infrastructures of National Importance

Estonian Research Council is involved in preparing the investment plan for „Research Infrastructures of National Importance“ based on the national research infrastructures roadmap. This activity is funded by the EU structural funds 2014-2020. Our tasks include preparing the documentation for investment proposals, collecting and assessing the investment proposals. The total investment is 30 923 147 euros, of which the EU support covers up to 85%.

The decisions for funding RIs of national importance will be approved as an investment plan by the Government of Estonia. The investment proposals will be collected during at least two calls. The first call was held in 2015-2015. Its volume is 65% of the total funding. The second call will be held after the Research Infrastructures Roadmap’s update in 2019.
