On 7th of November group of researchers with families visited the Art Museum of Estonia – KUMU. We spent a cultural and joyful day in the museum. The day began with a short welcoming lecture by Maarin Ektermann, Head of the Education Centre of Kumu, where we got an overview of Kumu as a research institution – the museum has a long history in research based activities, however it is officially a recognised research institution only since June 2015. There is a strong collaboration between Kumu and Estonian Academy of Arts, the strongest research fields being architecture and art/design/architecture in Soviet period. For the first half of the day visitors could choose either a guided tour on classical art with focus on paintings or a tour of modern and contemporary art. After lunch we discovered our hidden talents in lino-cutting and water-colour painting workshops. Some really nice masterpieces were born.

"I love my job and colleagues here. I have been rather active since my arrival with the possibility to focus on my research and develop my teaching skills at the same time."
"What makes living in Estonia very easy is the electronic/internet support, starting from the free WiFi through electronic banking, well developed e-services and ending with e-voting."
"We held a summer school at the University of Tartu in 2008. Since that time our two universities have signed and exchange agreement."
"Entering the Estonian community allows you to speak to anyone you want as a peer, another advantage of the little hierarchical Estonian society."
"The best part of Estonia is represented by its uncontaminated nature with many spectacular places and their rich and diversified flora and fauna."
