  • About the host

    photo banner Unversity Tallin 2Tallinn University is the youngest among all universities in the capital cities of Europe. It was founded only in 2005 as a merger of different universities and research institutions in Tallinn. Since then, it has been growing quickly and now has a student body of over 9,000 students (with 5.5% of them international), and over 900 employees, including more than 400 researchers and lecturers. The University consists of six institutes, two regional colleges, five centres of excellence, eight research centres and 13 support units. Academic institutes are competence centres in their specific fields and are active both in research and teaching.

    Tallinn University, as a university in Estonia, offers and develops education and research focusing on the needs of Estonia as a society. Given the new trends in higher education, the University also values internationalisation. One in ten academic staff members comes from abroad and the number of foreign students and the University’s contribution to international research increases yearly.

    Tallinn University is a partner in 14 European Union regional programmes, and a coordinator in one of them - Learning Layers. It also coordinates and partners the EU Framework Programme Horizon 2020 and has contracts with 55 partner universities from 30 countries and over 400 Erasmus+ partnerships.
