CENTRES OF EXCELLENCE

ESTONIA

Prof. Jüri Engelbrecht


History

HISTORY

In 2001, the Ministry of Education initiated the Estonian

Programme for Centres of Excellence in Research.

The following aims were set up:

  • to create the conditions for high-level research compatible with the strategy of research and development in Estonia;

  • to establish the conditions for Estonian centres of excellence to join the international network according to the European Union’s research policy;

  • to encourage co-operation between the research groups working in the close or complementary areas;

  • to create a mechanism for elaborating, developing and implementing innovative ideas.
