The aim of the project is to create an infrastructure that ensures the commercialisation of innovations created by the University of Latvia, the development of prototypes up to TLR6/7. Ensure the management of intellectual property.

It is planned to concentrate the excellence of UL in the house of Technology, it will have modern-equipped laboratories and will act as a technology development and transfer centre. The house of Technology includes three centres:

  • Life Sciences Centre (LSC);
  • High Energy Particle Centre (HEPC);
  • Material mechanics and Prototyping Centre (MMPC).

"Science is one of the best tools to bring people closer to creating innovation. The house of Technologies will be part of the Innovation Cooperation Platform, allowing for a rapid development of innovative products and technologies through cooperation between groups of scientists from different countries in the region.” Prof. Andrejs Ērglis. Chairman of the Strategy Council of the University of Latvia. 

 

The aim is to ensure the development of new technologies and products in the field of life sciences, the development of cooperation with industry and the development of start-ups. Create a material-technical base for the creation of new technologies, manufacturing systems and products and services in the pharmaceutical and medical sectors.

The aim is to create infrastructure to commercialise high-energy radiation research, to support both existing radiation technologies and the development of innovative technologies, and to strengthen the partnership between academia and industry in the field of radiation science and technology.

"There are already many projects in the UL that are developing prototypes whose technology readiness levels are still low. Special equipment is needed to raise the level of readiness for these prototyping technologies and move them closer to the market, Director of the Institute of Chemical Physics of the University of Latvia, scientific expert of the centre, Dr. chem. Donāts Erts.

The aim is: to develop research on composite materials for the aviation and space sector, design and modelling of new materials, prototyping and manufacturing technologies.

“The Material mechanics and Prototyping Centre of the house of Technologies, among other things, will provide material testing equipment that will allow internationally competitive high-quality scientific research. We are currently testing materials and structures in an accredited laboratory as the only ones in the Baltic region. What is important is that the house of Technologies provides a laboratory where it will be possible to produce samples from composite materials and later prototypes with, for example, assistance of 3D printing.” Institute of Materials Mechanics of the University of Latvia, scientific expert of the centre, Egīls Plūme.
