Research Funding

Research grants are aimed at supporting high-quality R&D projects and the accompanying research activities.

All researchers who work at positively evaluated Estonian R&D institutions, regardless of their citizenship or country of origin, can apply for research funding. The grants are financed from the Estonian state budget. The calls are organised by the Estonian Research Council. The Evaluation Committee of the Estonian Research Council is responsible for the evaluation of the applications as well as for making the funding proposals.

In exceptional calls, specific grants can be applied for, e.g the 2020 target grants.
