Press conference about the InnovaBalt project and future research strategy of the Latvian Institute of Organic Synthesis, February 28, 2017.
A widely attended press conference took place in the Latvian Institute of Organic Synthesis (LIOS) on February 28, 2017, the last day of the InnovaBalt project implementation. The Coordinator of project Professor Ivars Kalvins, Manager of project, Professor Maija Dambrova and Director of LIOS Osvalds Pugovics presented results achieved during the InnovaBalt project, recommendations of the external evaluation expert panel and plans for the future development and research strategy of LIOS. The representatives from the strategic partnering institutions: the University of Latvia, Riga Technical University, Riga Stradins University, the Association of Latvian Chemical and Pharmaceutical Industry, briefly informed about the examples of successful cooperation with LIOS in the past and intentions for future. The press conference materials were comprehensively reflected in the mass media: 10 TV plots, 18 radio plots, 4 articles in national newspapers and 42 briefings in internet portals (in total 74 communications).
InnovaBalt seminar, February 1, 2017.
ESFRI EU-OPENSCREEN (http://www.eu-openscreen.eu/) Coordinator Phil Gribbon and Scientific Manager Bahne Stechmann presented the goals and objectives of the European infrastructure for chemical biology, supporting life science research. The possibilities for Latvia to join EU-OPENSCREEN were discussed. Representatives from the Ministry of Education and Science, the Latvian Academy of Sciences, the State Education Development Agency, University of Latvia, Latvian Biomedical Research and Study Centre, Riga Stradiņš University and Riga Technical University participated in the seminar.
