the Project is in preparation stage

 

UL Academic Centre future vizualization

 

The House of Technologies is planned to concentrate all the excellence of UL science, it will have modernly equipped laboratories, and it will act as a technology development and transfer centre.

Cooperation between researchers and the private sector is an essential prerequisite for the development of science. The House of Technologies will promote cooperation between researchers and potential commercializers of scientific achievements. The University will inform the public as soon as a decision is made on the implementation of this project. 

The purpose of the House of Technologies project is to create an infrastructure that ensures the commercialization of innovations created by the UL and its cooperation partners, the development of prototypes up to TLR6/7, and the active management of intellectual property.

1. A modern infrastructure will be created for the development of science, research and studies at the University of Latvia.

2. The concentration of different directions of science in one place will promote cooperation and create an opportunity to conduct interdisciplinary research.

3. The House of Technologies will provide a point of contact between researchers and the private sector, promoting and supporting cooperation in the commercialization of research.
