Estonia

Estonia is represented in JPIAMR by the Estonian Ministry of Social Affairs and the Estonian Research Council.

AMR related research in Estonia has so far been mostly funded through the Estonian Research Council grants and the national research and development programmes. In the ongoing strategic research funding period (2014-2020) the national research programmes are currently in the process of being compiled and implemented in cooperation between the Estonian Research Council and the ministries responsible for the specific field of research (e.g. JPIAMR topics are relevant to the Ministry of Social Affairs, Ministry of Agriculture and Ministry of the Environment).
