Tallinna Tehnikaülikool

Short Name: TUT
Country: Estonia


Tallinn University of Technology (TUT) is committed to high level research and development in the field of engineering, technology, natural and social sciences. TUT comprises four Schools, Maritime Academy and 20 departments including the Department of Marine Systems. TUT owns a research vessel and infrastructure for R&D in oceanography, marine geology, coastal engineering, environmental engineering and related fields. The Department of Marine Systems employs about 60 persons. The research topics of the Department are related to marine physics and ecology, pollution control, coastal planning, remote sensing, and mathematical modelling. The results of basic research are used for the applied tasks, e.g., operational forecasting and environmental monitoring and status assessment. TUT has long experience in using research vessels, ferryboxes, buoy-based and bottom-mounted vertical profilers, gliders and other automated devices. The department is a leading national body in operational oceanography and is a member of EuroGOOS, BOOS, FerryBox, EGO, and other consortia.


TUT will undertake activities in WP4 Call Management and Proposal Evaluation, WP5 Stakeholder engagement, and WP6 Education and Training.
