Dear All,

I would like to bring to everybody's attention that in Tallinn University
in Estonia a new research centre was recently started - titled TLU Centre
of Excellence in Media Innovation and Digital Culture (MEDIT) -

 MEDITs research teams tend to focus on the following areas:

- trans- and crossmediality

- digitisation of audiovisual cultural heritage and its innovative reuse

- audiovisual media regulation and policy changes in Europe

- management of convergent media

- media innovation systems (incl. ‘cross-innovations’ - cooperations with
other sectors)

- augmented and virtual reality; location based storytelling (we are about
to have a dedicated lab)

- digital humanities approach to audiovisual media

- media semiotics (with a focus on media change)

- innovative uses of media in education

Related to these and closely associated topics we invite scholars to work
with us in Tallinn - especially as there are many good opportunities that
enable this:

- Marie Sklodowska-Curie Individual Fellowships.
is September 15th, we invite expressions of interest by July 4th.

- Mobilitas Plus programme - grants offered by Estonian Research Council.
There are two programmes - for post-doctoral researchers (
<http://www.etag.ee/en/funding/mobility-funding/23575-2/>) and
top-researchers (
Deadline is August 31st, we invite expressions of interest by July 4th.

- Our centre is also offering 1-3 months fellowships to work with us in
Tallinn - as part of our three research groups (digital humanities group,
audiovisual media group and digital media management group) or to work in
our Creatiive Lab that mostly focuses on experiments with augmented and
virtual reality in service of the memory sector. Interested scholars and
artists can contact us regarding these fellowships on a running basis.

Best of wishes,
