Research in Tallinn University

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

Wishing to contribute more to the society, we have set the goal of becoming the promoter of intelligent lifestyle in Estonia. The term Intelligent Lifestyle stands for making research-based decisions in order to improve the society in general and the well-being of its citizens.

To support both Estonian sustainability, as well as self-actualization of individuals, we consolidate our  activities into five focus fields.
