The Estonian Research Infrastructure Roadmap is published
The Estonian Research Infrastructure Roadmap is a gateway to the research world of Estonia and also the whole of Europe. In addition to descriptions and contact details, the publication includes information about Estonia’s current and planned memberships in major European research infrastructures.
The proposal of the roadmap was made by the Research Infrastructure Committee of the Estonian Research Council, who was joined by the members of the Estonian Academy of Sciences, distinguished university researchers, officials from different state institutions and experts from the private sector. The committee’s proposal was supported by the Research Policy Committee of the Ministry of Education and Research and the Research and Development Council.
"As you can see, the cooperation has been fruitful.The roadmap makes it easier to consider national priorities in making funding decisions. Estonia supported the development of roadmap objects already in the previous European Union budgetary period. This period, 2014–2020, an investment schedule with a total volume of 20.9 million euros was prepared on the basis of the roadmap, 26.3 million euros of which involved the European Union’s structural support. The government allocated 20.1 million euros of the total volume for investments already in 2016. The rest of the funds are allocated on the basis of the second investment proposal collection round, in which new objects that have not yet received funding will participate.The welfare of the Estonian state, language, education and culture is directly linked to research and development, for which researchers require excellent working conditions" stated the Estonian Minister of Education and Research, Mailis Reps.
