For visiting scholars

The EACH visiting scholarship was an excellent opportunity for me, a researcher who has professional knowledge, to derive pleasure from communicating it to students as well. At the University of Tartu, I established good relations with the faculty staff, and highly-motivated and responsive students, which was a really rewarding experience for me.  Dr. Rouvim Kadis   (D.
