Our share of most influencal scientist

Text by Lauri Laanisto

Last week Clarivate Analytics released it´s annual list of top researchers – the ones that are considered most influential among their discipline (link to methodology). Estonia had altogether 7 scientist in that list (compared with last year´s 4), six from from the University of Tartu (TÜ) and one from the Estonian University of Life Sciences (EMÜ), containing more than 3,000 influential natural and social science researchers from around the world. (For example nobody from the other Baltic states, Latvia and Lithuania, made it to the list.)

From those 7 most influential Estonian researchers 4 (!!!) are members of our centre of excellence: Ülo Niinemets, Martin Zobel, Urmas Kõljalg and Leho Tedersoo. So one can say that EcolChange really is the dominant force in Estonian science.
