The aim of the project “Support for effective participation of Vidzeme University of Applied Sciences within the international scientific circles (ViA-lnt)” is to promote the involvement of the research staff at Vidzeme University of Applied Sciences with international research schemes, thus strengthening their capacity in developing international projects, boosting researchers’ networking opportunities and foreign connections as well as developing research opportunities within the research sub-directions of ViA. As a result, ViA will take part in preparing applications for at least 7 ERDF supported projects as well as programmes marked above the quality threshold within the “Horizon 2020” and EU’s 9th framework programme.




The goal of the project is to increase the international mobility of students and staff as well as international cooperation within programme countries.




The goal of the project is to increase international cooperation with partner countries.

Project aim
Project aim is to equip social service providers in rural areas of the Baltic Sea Region with better tools for service innovation. These tools will be based on the idea of empowerment and end-user involvement.




The main objective of this research is to develop a solution for visualising IoT elements in indoor and outdoor environments where distances to the object exceed five meters. The primary results of this research should ensure a dynamic and animated three-dimensional (3D) computer model depiction in augmented reality mode without the use of fiducial or image-based markers. Such technological innovation will offer ample cases of augmented reality use in various industries and have economic ramifications.



The aim of the research project is using advantages of ICT development to create GIS solutions-based tourism intelligence platform of market information, providing analyses and forecasts of pan-Baltic Big Data representing cross-sectoral industry performance in multi-destination levels to improve competitiveness of Latvia in export markets and facilitate regional development.


The scientific objective of the project is research in the field of ICT and modern art in Latvia in order to find new ideas to benefit ICT rooted in the contemporary cultural tradition that has already lasted over one hundred years and which embodies the basic intellectual codes of today.


The aim of the research project is the development of ICT-based, new, productive technological algorithms for measuring economic effects of tourism for two digital application prototypes as a single and new digital computing tool in research e-environment.
