Microsoft Vice President and CFO Alain Crozier's visit to Tallinn on September 7 heralds a new relationship between Estonia and the US-based software giant that extends beyond a shared love of innovation.

Crozier arrived at the Tallinn University of Technology to initiate talks with Alar Kolk, the school's vice rector, about Microsoft leading research projects with faculty and students at the university.

"Microsoft is a global trendsetter, and Alain Crozier is the man behind innovations that we use daily," Kolk told ETV. "This meeting is an important milestone marking the start of cooperation toward innovation."

Both men were vague about the specifics and nature of future research projects, though undeniably enthusiastic.

Crozier and Kolk also spoke about future internship prospects for Tallinn Tech students at Microsoft headquarters in Redmond, Washington.

Later in the day, Crozier delivered a public talk at the university.
