The President of the Estonian Academy of Sciences, Professor Tarmo Soomere, visited the Academy in April. He met with the Academy’s Secretary Biological Sciences, Dr TJ Higgins, and also learnt about the Academy’s Early- and Mid-Career Researcher (EMCR) Forum as the Estonian Academy has an interest in supporting young researchers.
While in Australia, Professor Soomere met with Academy President, Professor John Shine and with Australia’s Chief Scientist and Academy Fellow, Dr Alan Finkel. He also sought information on the Australian Research Council to learn about Australia’s research and development, its research priorities and research funding models.
