Students’ Personalised Learning Model, Based on the Virtual Learning Environment of Intellectual Tutoring "Learning with No Limits"


SMART-PL is a 3-year project, focused on introducing a model of personalized learning, based on the

virtual learning environment of Intellectual Tutoring "Learning with No Limits". Intellectual tutoring is a set of
learning tools: SMART online platform for virtual personalized learning and formative student assessment;
сo-working center with equipment for organizing hybrid learning, which increases the educational process's
efficiency and gives both teachers and students more opportunities. "Learning with No Limits" means that all
students are welcomed - regardless of age, personality, socioeconomic status, or educational needs,
regardless of the opportunity to be present in the audience or not.

The project is divided into 7 WPs which are linked to promoting the cooperation of partners to
implement the European experience of personalized learning; improving educational programs of
universities; increasing transparency and comprehensibility of education and assessment for students
(including the results of non-formal education), reducing students’ anxiety as for their professional expertise
and forming their confidence to achieve efficient results; to improve the quality of teaching materials; to
facilitate students’ mobility, including in virtual mode, on a university/country scale, inter-university/country
levels, between academic sectors and forms of education); to create extra opportunities to get higher
education for people with disabilities and specific academic needs through inclusive education and the
implemented model of personalized learning and hybrid technologies.

The fundamental principle of the project is a personalized approach aimed at forming a highly qualified
competitive specialist who can conduct innovative activities and has the skills of continuous professional
development. The personalized approach is characterized by innovative teaching methods, designed to
encourage collaboration between students and teachers, emphasizing the central role of students in
controlling their learning.
Duration of the project: 1.01.2023 - 31.12.2025

Erasmus+ Jean Monnet Module "Legal and Regulatory Governance of Artificial Intelligence Systems", 2022-2025


This project has received funding from the European Union’s ERASMUS+ programme (topic: ERASMUS-JMO-2022-MODULE) under grant agreement no 101085796 – LRGAIS.

The European Union Law has been the main field of studies provided by TalTech Law School (TLS) of Tallinn University of Technology (TalTech) since its establishment. However, being part of the technology university meant for TLS to focus its studies and research on relations between law and technology, within the EU law and in general. Throughout these years, TLS has firmly established itself as a leading expert in the field of law and technology in Estonia and beyond, in addition to the studies, providing expert opinions for the institutions from public and private sector concerning the newest developments in field of law and technology.

Our experience shows that rapid development in the field requires constant update of study materials and syllabi of relevant courses, old and new, in order to keep up with the pace and make sure the students follow the recent developments closely and are prepared for the work in the field. Therefore, our module will focus on offering three courses relevant to the task. The courses will cover issues from legal and regulatory governance of Autonomous Intelligent Technologies (AI), explaining how and if existing legal systems are able to handle the consequences of further implementation of AI systems, as well as ethical and human rights aspects of using such technologies. The main issue being to achieve a better understanding of the distribution of the responsibilities and liabilities between humans and their use of AI systems, considering the plethora of interacting technology (e.g. chatbots) developers, cloud providers, hardware manufacturers, telco and network operators, and application and platform service providers.

Three courses included in the module will cover the most relevant and actual aspects of above-mentioned and will not be offered only to law students at TalTech, but to the students of other programmes, as well as anyone interested, being able to declare the course via open university of TalTech.

Duration of the project: 1.09.2022 - 31.08.2025

The following courses are offered within this module each academic year, please see below. For further information (including registration, syllabi, etc.), please contact the responsible teachers.

Annual conferences are conducted at the end of each academic year within the duration of the project, where students, public officials, private sector representatives, general public, and colleagues from academic circles working in the field will be able to learn and discuss the latest issues in the field. 

Our project was presented to the students at the Lille Catholic University Law School on 19 October and 23 November 2022.

Digital Single Market as a New Core of European Union Studies

Summary of the project:

TalTech Law School (Department of Law) has provided EU law studies for a decade and has been focusing on the field of law and technology for approximately 5 years which has brought notoriety in the field, in both of research and teaching, across Europe and further, attracting students and research networks from all over the world. Our students come from the EU as well as neighbouring countries; our research partners from all over the world contribute to our publications (law and technology books published by Springer, article co-publishing and joining in project consortia). This project aims to deepen the specialisation even further, introducing Digital Single Market law-focused modules, accessible to all TalTech students. The new specialisations needed with the effectuating of the DSM generate new jobs that require digital skills, and not only from the IT sector but from all fields, including law. The ever powerful information technology needs to be framed with a proper legislation and regulatory policies, and in order to achieve this, our societies must be adaptable from the ground up. Given project aims to address and tackle the need for future specialists in the interdisciplinary fields of law and technology, including data protection officials, aware of the seamless flow of data in the digital environment and the effect of big data; including ICT specialists cautious of the protection digital identities in the e-society and natural resources such as spectrum allocation or establishment of new technologies and their legal framework, such as setting up 5G, or protecting our economics against cyber threats and hybrid threats. In order to prepare contemporary lawyers for their future prospects, the project foresees 3 modules of teaching: general DSM course, ICT law course and ethics of law and technology; and a practical legal clinic running on the side in order to practice the skills learned in parallel with the studies to engage in and obtain a comprehension of the practical side.

Institutions for Knowledge Intensive Development: Economic and Regulatory Aspects in South-East Asian Transition Economies (Horizon 2020 Grant No. 734712)

2017-2020   |   Financing 1,318,500 EUR

Knowledge led economies benefit greatly from positive externalities, both economically and socially. The achievement of knowledge driven growth is particularly challenging for emerging market economies.

The project seeks to understand micro level incentives and macro level institutional mechanisms to encourage and facilitate knowledge creation and absorption, with particular focus on transition countries in South-East Asia. We seek to study the mechanisms, regulatory incentives and challenges in transferring knowledge into economic value. Moreover, we aim to identify and outline capable regulatory measures to address market frictions and inefficiencies on the path towards a knowledge economy.

The project makes use of frontier empirical research methods, including advanced stochastic frontier analysis and dynamic panel data estimation techniques. The conceptual underpinnings of the project are at the intersection of industrial organisation theories, new institutional economics, development economics, and modern concepts in regulatory efficiency and justice.

The project aims to develop lasting excellence oriented cooperation with South-East Asian universities, and contribute to R&D capacity building based on European academic values. Promoting of the project results through intersectoral knowledge transfer will be an important task. We aim to contribute to social innovation through policy suggestions, and to a paradigm shift regarding the role of institutions in transition processes.

The project is a joint effort of Tallinn University of Technology (Estonia) and University of Lausanne (Switzerland) economics and law researchers with transition studies experience from Eastern Europe, and their fellow researchers from the National University of Laos (Laos), Ho Chi Minh City University of Law (Vietnam) and Royal University of Law and Economics (Cambodia) with thorough insight into the institutional context in their societies.
