TUT holds 30 patents, about 53 patent applications and 18 useful models The most vivid examples: Test systems for establishing novel drug candidates for treatment of neurological disorders Research groups of professors Tõnis Timmusk and Peep Palumaa are developing methods for discovering new drug candidates for the treatment of neurological diseases. The team of professor Palumaa is focusing on setting up novel drug screen platform based on high throughput mass spectometry analysis to find potential drug candidates for curing Alzheimer’s disease. The team of professor Timmusk is developing biological test systems for testing novel drug candidates against various neuropsychiatric disorders using genetically modified mice and cell lines. Both research groups have applied for patents to protect their new methods. Impedance spectroscopy of dynamic objects Professor Mart Min’s research group is focusing on the development of novel methodologies to measure bioelectric complex resistance in living tissues and organs. Measuring the bio impedance involves lowamplitude, high-frequency electric current that is directed through the living object. One of the practical outcomes of such methods is the new generation cardiac pacemaker, which is significally smaller than the previous generation product, and much more complete. The device is observing and controlling the functioning of the heart and is excluding the situation of overload, that might result in myocardial infarction. This new generation cardiac pacemaker is using bio impedance measurements and analysis of the bioelectric complex resistance. Another practical outcome of the research group’s scientific investigations has been development of the method and device to identify false euro coins.

The research team has been awarded international patents to their inventions. Biofluid optics The team of Professor Ivo Fridolin has developed novel technical solutions, using optical methods, to measure the concentration of different substances in biological fluids. The methods incorporate spectrophotometry, fluorimetrics and different signal processing algorithms. The research group has shown that UV and florescence spectra on certain wavelengths are correlated with the amount of certain substances in biological fluids. Some of these substances are important in diagnosis of certain diseases. Practical outcome of these methods involve real-time measurements of uremic toxins during kidney dialysis and through this estimating the quality of dialysis procedure. The research team has been awarded several patents to their work. Inventions in the field of photovoltaic cells Scientists of the Department of Materials Science have concentrated their research efforts for a long time on creation of new radiation-sensitive and solar energy materials and use thereof in different devices. Results of the conducted research work are protected by the patents of the countries of Europe, USA, Germany and several other countries. In cooperation with Jülich Research Centre in Germany, Lead Research Scientist Mare Altosaar and Professor Enn Mellikov have developed several technological capabilities for the production of single crystal powder and formation of photovoltaic cells on the basis thereof. In cooperation with Dutch company Scheuten Glasgroep, Lead Research Scientists Mare Altosaar and Jaan Raudoja and Professor Enn Mellikov have developed a method for the process to produce a Cu(In,Ga)Se2 single crystal powder and monograin membrane solar cell comprising this powder. As a result of research work of the research group conducted under the leadership of Lead Research Scientist Malle Krunks, there have been developed chemical methods for production of solar energy materials. In cooperation with Lead Research Scientist Malle Krunks, Senior Research Scientists Arvo Mere and Ilona Oja Acik, Research Scientists Atanas Katerski and Tatjana Dedova, there has been completed an invention „Photovoltaic cell based on Zinc Oxide nanorods“ regarding preparation of nanostructural photovoltaic device mainly by chemical spray pyrolysis. Design of nanostructural photovoltaic cell and technologies for preparation of constituent parts have also been developed.

ESTONIA

Estonia Estonia is a small country located along the northeastern shore of the Baltic Sea, just south of Finland. Because of its location Estonia is considered to be an important link between East and West. It is bounded on the west and north by the Baltic Sea and on the east by Lake Peipsi and the Narva River. It is bordered on the east and southeast by Russia and on the south by Latvia. Estonia is often referred to as a very small country. With an area of 45,000 km², Estonia is in fact bigger than for example Belgium, the Netherlands, Denmark or Switzerland, but still five times smaller than for example United Kingdom. Estonia stretches 350 km from east to west and 240 km from north to south. Sea islands form one tenth and lakes about one twentieth of Estonia’s territory. Almost half of Estonia’s territory is covered by forest and woodland. Estonia is a full member state of the European Union. At the end of 2007 Estonia joined the Schengen Agreement, which provides even greater mobility amongst European countries. The country has been particularly successful in information and telecommunications technology: there are lots of public internet cafes and the majority of people have computers and access to the Internet. Since Estonia is an “e-republic”, there are a lot of things people can do using the Internet or cell phones, and they don’t even have to leave their homes: e-banking, e-parking, e-studying and e-voting are just some examples. Estonia’s population ranks amongst the smallest in the world. According to the data taken in 2010, there are only 1,340,000 people living in Estonia. Despite its small population, the country has one hundred different nationalities and ethnic groups represented. The largest of these are Estonians (68.6 per cent), Russians (25.6 per cent), Ukrainians (2.1 per cent), Byelorussians (1.2 per cent), and Finns (0.8 per cent). Estonian people see Estonia as a multicultural and multi-ethnic country. The summers in Estonia are warm, the temperature sometimes reaching up to 32 C degrees. The winters are moderately mild. February is usually the coldest; the temperature can go below minus 20 C degrees.

TALLINN

Tallinn

Tallinn, Estonia’s capital city is only 80 kilometres south of Helsinki, across the Gulf of Finland. You can get here by plane, train and bus. You can depart from Tallinn’s international airport and in 20 minutes be in Helsinki, or in less than two hours arrive at Stockholm, Copenhagen, Riga, St. Petersburg or Vilnius. Tallinn is the meeting point of medieval heritage and high-tech. The jewel in Tallinn’s crown is its medieval city centre, otherwise known as The Old Town where medieval buildings and sacred structures have been preserved nearly unchanged. Tallinn’s Old Town is selected to the list of UNESCO World Heritage sites. On the other hand, Tallinn is a modern and open city with tall buildings of glass and steel, illuminated signs of major international companies, a modern airport and passenger ports. In 2007 Tallinn was selected by the European Council to be the European Capital of Culture for the year 2011. Tallinn is also the number one city in the world which is almost fully covered with Wireless Internet. You can use your laptop almost everywhere around the city. Many information technology inventions have gotten their start from Tallinn. Skype is one of the best-known of several Tallinn IT start-ups. The New York Times has characterized Estonia as “a sort of Silicon Valley on the Baltic Sea.“ In fact, TUT is just 10 minutes away from Skype’s office, so we are located in a truly hightech environment. TUT is the leader on the technology universities market in Estonia, member of different technology networks in the Baltic countries and European technology universities networks.
