Consolidator Grant
Main investigator: Prof. Dominique Unruh

To ensure that digital communication remains secure in the future, in the age of quantum computing, CerQuS is developing methods to mathematically verify the security of new quantum protocols using computers. 


ICT Research Support Measure


ICT Research Support Measure is part of the IT Academy programme, which supports the strengthening of ICT (Information and Communication Technology) research capacity at the University of Tartu, Tallinn University of Technology and Tallinn University.



LUMI supercomputer


Led by the Finnish IT Centre for Science, CSC, one of the world’s most powerful supercomputers, LUMI is being built. Estonia also has a holding in the computer, which gives our researchers and companies access to much higher computing capacity than they have had so far. The High Performance Computing Center of University of Tartu, as a partner in the LUMI consortium, is working to develop the supercomputer. We have developed a resource management solution Puhuri, which gives access to the computing capacity.


European Strategy Forum for Research Infrastructures (ESFRI)

ESFRI is a strategic instrument to develop the scientific integration of Europe and to strengthen its international outreach.  The Institute of Computer Science of the University of Tartu is a member of several international research infrastructures.


ELIXIR, a distributed infrastructure for life-science information
ELIXIR ensures that data generated by publicly funded research is accessible for users in academia and industry. ELIXIR enables the exchange and analysis of data and supports knowledge sharing between researchers.

Leaders in Estonia: Prof. Jaak Vilo ja Prof. Hedi Peterson.






SoBigData++ is a distributed and multi-disciplinary research infrastructure aimed at using social mining, big data and artificial intelligence to understand our globally-interconnected society. 

Leader in Estonia: Assoc. Prof. Rajesh Sharma.
