|The Estonian Research Council (Eesti Teadusagentuur – ETAG), responsible for and established by the Ministry of Education and Research, is a private organisation by law with public functions. Its main mission is to support the most promising research initiatives in all fields of basic and applied research. The highest decision-making body of ETAG is its seven-member Council. It appoints four expert commissions, covering different areas of scholarship, and is responsible for final funding decisions.|
As a research founding body, the objectives of the ETAG are not only to foster the development of basic and applied research and support the most qualified and successful researchers and research groups, but also involve post-graduate and doctoral students in active research and facilitate international cooperation and the mobility of researchers. This is attained mainly by the annual call for research project proposals and different programmes for post-docs’ and researchers’ mobility.
An important part of the activities is international relations and cooperation. ETAG represents the Estonian research community at the international level, including cooperation with European organisations and in bilateral agreements. ETFAG has established close cooperation with many other research councils and foundations across the world.
