Large-scale events – festivals, days of Estonian culture – require good collaboration between many organisations and people in Estonia and abroad. In such cases, the role of the Estonian Institute is coordinating ideas and professionals and work with the public, private and non-profit sectors.

For better cultural exchange Estonian Institute is managing two branches abroad: in Finland and Hungary. An important collaboration entails cultural exchange with Estonian embassies and cultural attaches.

A compiled list of Estonian Institute’s biggest partners and collaborators can be found here.

Over the years the Estonian Institute has published dozens of information booklets and periodicals about Estonia, compiled web pages, organized festivals, exhibitions, conferences and seminars, received journalists, researchers and lecturers, translators and writers, opened culture and information centers in other countries, granted scholarships, dispatched lecturers of Estonian language and culture to universities abroad and supplied the study centres with relevant material.

Estonian Institute is an active member of EUNIC Global Network. EUNIC stands for European Union National Institutes for Culture and it’s an European network for organisations who are engaging in cultural relations. EUNIC Tallinn cluster is active and waiting for all interested parties to join.
