Tallinn University supports the sustainable development of Estonia through high quality research and study, the education of intellectuals, public discussions and the promotion of academic partnerships. 

To contribute to the sustainability of society, we aim to promote intelligent lifestyle in Estonia. This means making research-based decisions in order to improve society in general as well as the well-being of its citizens.
