The Geological Survey of Estonia was re-born as a national authority under the administration of the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Communications on the 1st January 2018. Fifty passionate professionals are now joining forces with scientists, authorities and industry in order to awake the employment of geological opportunities that were collected during the periods 1937-1940 and 1957-1997. An enormous amount of geological knowledge is now being reinforced and modernised with state-of-the-art methods and techniques. Through wide cooperation with international experts GSE aims to support the most efficient usage of Estonian Land Resources in the light of the EU Green Deal.
