  • New University Strategic Plan (2009–2015) – ? The University’s Botanical Garden is the oldest in the Baltic countries, founded in 1803. The Garden’s collection features 6,500 plant species from all climatic zones of the world. The Garden’s greenhouse is the biggest in the Baltic States and the richest in its species diversity. University History Museum (founded in 1976) displays a unique collection of scientific instruments of the past. Among other exhibits, visitors can marvel at Arabian globes from the XIV century, gold scales from 1560, a Dollond telescope from the XVIII century, and the physics laboratory of G. Fr. Parrot, the first Rector of the reopened University (early XIX century). University of Tartu Art Museum (founded in 1803 ) exhibits plaster casts of famous sculptures from antiquity, early graphic prints from Western Europe, a more than 3,000 years old mummy, Russian icons, Japanese woodcuts, and many other treasures. In the turmoil of WW I considerable part of Museum’s art collection was evacuated to Voronezh, Russia where it remains to this day. Museum of Natural History (founded in 1802) has rich collections of botanical, zoological and geological specimens from all over the world (overall, more than … items).
  • The Faculty of Science and Technology was created through a merger (effective since January 2008) of two faculties – the Faculty of Physics and Chemistry, and the Faculty of Biology and Geography – and a number of research institutes (Estonian Marine Institute, Institute of Technology, Institute of Physics).
  • UT Research Centre for Environmental and Material Analysis – a new study and research facility to accommodate the institutes of the Faculty of Science and Technology as well as those of the Faculty of Exercise and Sport Sciences and the Faculty of Social Sciences, providing contemporary research environment for material and environmental science and biomedicine. The six-storey facility will accommodate research and instructional laboratories, four 100-seat lecture rooms, offices for the administrative staff and a library. Laboratories will be furnished with 156 fume cupboards and 5 km of gas pipes.
