Excerpt from the letter of Ministry of Education and Research about the financing of science in 2014 and 2015.
Date: 17 October 2014 number 5.1-5/14/6258
The last targeted research topics will be finished in 2015 and 2016. Their overall volume is comparatively small compared to the overall volume of institutional research topics (under 10%). Due to the cyclical nature of financing, the overall volume of targeted research topics to finish in 2015 is very small (about 200 000 euros) and without additional finances it would not be reasonable to carry out a full new call for institutional research topics. After negotiations with the Estonian Research Council it was agreed that this sum will be added to the call 2016 when a full-fledged call will be held. Therefore, only the call to continue funding the previously funded institutional research topics will be held from 1 February to 20 March 2015.
