Kui teadlasest saab president.

Avaldasime TÜMRI veebilehel refereerituna artikli Alar Karisest ja tema teekonnast teadlasena, mis ilmus paar päeva tagasi Eesti Teadusagentuuri poolt hallatud veebilehel Research In Estonia.

Sõna saavad mitmed TÜMRI-ga seotud teadlased nagu Andres Metspalu, Raivo Raid, Tambet Tõnissoo, Sulev Kuuse ja Tarmo Annilo.

„Kui teadmisi napib, siis tuleb seda öelda. Kui ma midagi ei tea, on mul kombeks seda selgelt tunnistada. Poliitikute puhul näen tendentsi anda jah või ei vastuseid, kõik on nende jaoks kas must või valge. Teaduses on palju rohkem varjundeid, mis paneb teadlased lakkamatult küsimusi esitama,“ sõnab Vabariigi President Alar Karis.

Eesti haridus saab Dubais toimuval maailmanäitusel üleilmset tähelepanu! 🌎

Täna algab Araabia Ühendemiraatides 🇦🇪 maailmanäitus Expo 2020 Dubai, mille eesmärk on näidata saavutusi, millega maailma eri riigid on hakkama saanud. Eesti paviljonis tutvustatakse kuue kuu jooksul Eesti digiühiskonda tervikuna ning olulisel kohal on meie haridus, teadus, innovatsioon ja haridustehnoloogilised lahendused.

Haridust tutvustatakse laiale maailmale teadmiste ja õppimise nädalal, mis vältab 12. kuni 18. detsembrini. Minister Liina Kersna külastab maailmanäitust ning osaleb rahvusvahelisel konverentsil "RewirEd", mis toimub 12. kuni 14. detsembrini, kus on arutluse all haridusuuendused ja innovatsiooni vajalikkus haridusele. Koos ministriga osalevad haridusnädalal avalik-õiguslike ülikoolide Tartu Ülikooli, Tallinna Ülikooli, Tallinna Tehnikaülikooli, Eesti Kunstiakadeemia, Eesti Muusika- ja Teatriakadeemia, Eesti Maaülikool/Estonian University of Life Sciences esindajad ning Estonian Business Schooli esindaja.

Eesti Teadusagentuuri programm Research In Estonia tutvustab, kuidas Eesti saab panustada globaalsete probleemide lahendamisse ja otsib võimalusi, kuidas seda rahvusvahelise koostöö abil veelgi tõhusamalt teha. Ettevõtlus- ja teaduskoostöö võimalusi otsitakse neljas valdkonnas: haridus, personaalne meditsiin, ringmajandus ning tark linn. Eesti teadust tutvustavad oma valdkonna tippteadlased.

Kuna Eesti digiharidust saadab üha kasvav globaalne huvi, tutvustatakse maailmanäitusel ettevõtete Eliis, Clanbeat, SpeakTX, Opiq, Schoolaby, Tutor.id, DreamApply, Mobi Lab loodud haridustehnoloogilisi lahendusi ning korraldatakse debatte teemal, milline võiks olla õpilasekeskne ja kvaliteetne tulevikuharidus.

🇪🇪 Сьогодні ми відзначаємо 3️⃣0️⃣-річчя з Дня відновлення незалежності Естонської держави 🎉

Цей шлях не був легким, але його було пройдено з любов’ю у рівній мірі тут і за кордоном. Згадаймо сьогодні з вдячністю тих, хто боровся за прийняття Балтійського меморандуму у 1979 році, і тих, хто роком пізніше, не боячись репресій, підписав «Лист сорока» на захист естонської мови та культури. Подякуймо всім тим, хто зберігав естонську ідентичність у серці та діяв на благо цього в Естонії та в усьому світі. Тридцять років тому естонський народ повернув собі право самостійно вирішувати власну долю 👏

Велика вдячність усім естонцям за кордоном за те, що з власної волі та у свій вільний час боролися за краще майбутнє нашої держави. Особливо тішить, що естонська молодь, яка народилася поза межами Естонії, береже свою історію і культуру та готова дати естонській ідентичності нове дихання. Естонські організації та культурні товариства за кордоном робили і роблять надзвичайно важливу роботу, тож продовжуймо її з таким самим натхненням і далі! 🥰

Зі Святом нас усіх!
💙🖤🤍Elagu Eesti💙🖤🤍

Corona Crisis Increased the Amount of Plastic Waste in the World

During the crisis, people started buying more packaged and/or frozen food with a longer shelf life, which led to an increase in the amount of biowaste and packaging,” say senior lecturer at Tallinn University of Technology, Viktoria Voronova, and assistant Marija Klõga.

Together with their international colleagues, they asked people from 23 countries how their consumption habits changed during the COVID-19 pandemic. A total of 204 people provided answers about their consumption levels, waste generation and waste management in the conditions of the pandemic.

Art makes children happier at school | Research In Estonia

How can we support kids to create stronger connections in school?🙋

Creative therapy can help tackle the main school problem: relationships!

More than academic achievements, relationships with teachers play a central role in motivating and engaging students to learn.

Creative therapy is a form of healing process where the feelings and thoughts are expressed through arts like drawing, music, drama or clay work. After two decades of research on the topic and practice in the field, Marika Ratnik showed in her PhD thesis that creative therapy teaches pupils to heal through art.

Probiotics + blueberries = vegan super shot for flu seasons🤩

Boosting your health with probiotics is the new talk of the town.

Estonian scientists at the BioCC research centre took different plants and fermented them with their own bacteria that also acts as probiotics to create a super shot for flu seasons.

“The more our society has developed, the poorer our microbiota has become,” said Marika Mikelsaar from University of Tartu.
Probiotics can strengthen cell immunity that helps to recognise and reject foreign invaders like viruses.

New discoveries of genetic risk factors in polycystic o***y syndrome. 🧬

Based on genetic data of over 233 000 women, the study highlights the importance of population-specific biobanks.

"It is a multifactorial condition, meaning both genetics and environmental or lifestyle factors increase the risk," said co-author Triin Laisk, Associate Professor at the Institute of Genomics

“Due to differences in demographic history, the enrichment of some variants in Finnish and Estonian populations provided a unique opportunity to capture novel rare genetic variants associated with polycystic o***y syndrome when focusing only on these populations”, explained PhD student Natàlia Pujol Gualdo, who is co-first author of this work.

Estonia might be small in size but we are a great place for research.🧑‍🔬

Already in 2016 we accomplished the published science articles target (1600) set for 2020 by publishing 1659 high quality science articles per 1 millon people.

The most cited fields (compared to global average of the field) are clinical medicine; molecular biology and genetics; biology and biochemistry; physics; and plant and animal sciences (WoS, InCites, in 2010-2020).

Foreign researchers appreciate us as well.

The proportion of foreign researchers among all researchers working in Estonia has increased from 6,3% in 2012 to 10,9% in 2019. The facilitating factor is the modern buildings and laboratories of universities and research institutions, which create internationally attractive conditions for research.

“Both the department (Botany) and the workgroup (macroecology) I am part of have exceptionally high scientific levels, and the surrounding workgroups are also exceptional, which have led to very enriching collaborations; among the places I have worked in my career this is for sure the best in scientific terms.” – @Carlos Pérez Carmona, Associate Professor in Macroecology at University of Tartu

Estonia’s unique position in raw materials supply chain touted at GreenEST Summit | Research In Estonia

Estonia will have a distinct role in the European rare earth element supplychain in the future. 🧱⛓

Rutt Hints from TalTech - Tallinn University of Technology discussed Estonia’s opportunities in raw materials at the GreenEST Summit, an annual greentech confab held at the tail of October where European public and private sector experts, cleantech companies, and investors gather to talk.

Estonia has some potential in the raw materials market, Hints said, noting the presence of phosphates and rare earth elements like vanadium that are “critical” for greentech.

Estonia is also well positioned to utilize such deposits because it hosts a separation facility, Silmet, for rare earth elements, which is one of the few of such facilities outside of China.
