The official opening event of the teaming for excellence projects in digitalised bioengineering and personalised medicine was held at the university’s main building on the 11th of September, 2023. The event featured speeches from representatives of the European Commission and the Estonian Ministry of Education and Research. University of Tartu researchers and collaborators from international partner institutions also discussed the detailed work plans of the consortia.
At the start of 2023, international consortia led by University of Tartu researchers secured a combined €60 million in funding from the European Commission and the Estonian government. This funding will support the development of two research centers in Estonia over the next six years. Additionally, these centers will play a pivotal role in advancing the digitalized bioindustry and fostering startups engaged in data-driven healthcare services.
These initiatives are financially supported through the Teaming for Excellence funding initiative under Horizon Europe, the European Commission’s framework program for research and innovation. This program is designed to facilitate collaborative projects among European research institutions, with the goal of conducting cutting-edge research and enhancing its integration into both society and the economy.
