Tallinn University of Technology

Tallinn University of Technology is setting sights for the next five years and beyond. We are awaiting thoughts about what kind of TalTech Estonia, the world, and the future need, from current and coming students, researchers, and entrepreneurs. TalTech is the only technical university in Estonia – let's make it into something that we could all enjoy! 

You can take part in two competitions:

Essay competition: "University without borders, the best opportunity for Estonia"

What could be the role of a future university for the student, society, and the planet? Where do smart people come from and how not to lose or waste their potential? How to dissolve imaginary boundaries between countries, organizations, sexes, and fields of activity?

We invite visionaries and philosophers, students and parents, writers, and entrepreneurs to participate.

  • Essay length: 10 000 characters
  • Deadline: January 3, 2021
  • Send your essay to esseekonkurss@taltech.ee
  • The main prize is 800 euros. The rector of TalTech will invite the authors of the best essays to a dinner meeting with his team to discuss the topic of university without borders.
