The conference is organized by the Institute of Energy Systems and Environment (IESE) of Riga Technical University

IESE is gradually becoming a leader in Environmental Science and engineering science in Latvia. This is testified by our partners’ unwavering interest in cooperation with us both in research sectors well-balanced in climate technologies and resilience, energy and environmental policy, environmental governance and energy management and resolution of engineering-technical issues in industrial, agricultural, energy and waste management companies.

IESE commitment to sustainability fosters innovation and subsequently supports future projects.

The balanced advancement in the IESE scientific research capacities is made sustainable through cooperation with partners in Latvia, the European Union member states, Norway, the USA, Colombia, Canada, Taiwan, India, and other countries. We participate in joint projects within the Baltic Sea Region, HORIZON and the Nordic Energy Research programmes. Our commitment to collaboration and our international focus has been the key factors in attracting investment and facilitated the resolution of several environmental and engineering issues.
