Academic Researcher Exchange

The Estonian Academy of Sciences (EAS) supports international mobility of researchers and scientific cooperation and networking. Mobility is possible in the form of joint research projects and short research visits.

For fulfilling this aim EAS has signed bilateral agreements with nearly 20 countries. Bilateral exchange scheme is a cost-sharing co-operation instrument – the host Academy covers the accommodation costs and daily allowance (based on the rates of the host academy) of visiting researchers nominated by sending partner Academies.

EAS welcomes visits to all Estonian public universities and research institutions.
Estonian researchers from the Positively evaluated R&D institutions are eligible to apply for research visits abroad.

Council for International Exchanges is supervising the programme.
Academy Office is responsible for the management of the day-to-day work.
