Excellence in science requires a high degree of international interaction. The Act and Statutes of the Estonian Academy of Sciences (EAS) hold promotion of scientific co-operation at national and international levels among the main responsibilities of the EAS. The Academy’s international activities fall into the following major areas:
- representation of Estonian science in various international organisations; support to Estonian National Committees for international scientific unions, dissemination of information about such activities;
- participation in various EU structures (expert committees and advisory boards, EURAXESS Network Services of mobility centres, R&D programmes, etc.); involvement in NATO science programmes;
- bilateral co-operation with academies and other partner institutions on the basis of co-operation agreements;
- organisation of and participation in joint scientific events.
