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.
60% of our academic staff have a doctoral degree and 61% of our academic staff are women.
From six Frascat research fields, three are prominently represented in Tallinn University: natural sciences, social sciences and humanities, and arts. These were granted a positive evaluation in 2017.
In 2017, our financed projects were in:
- Social sciences and culture – 74,3%
- Natural sciences and technology – 13,4%
- Bio- and environmental research – 9,5%
- Health research – 2,8%
