E³UDRES², the Engaged and Entrepreneurial European University as Driver for European Smart and Sustainable Regions, promotes the development of small and medium-sized cities and their rural areas into smart and sustainable regions and shapes a prosperous future with the best possible quality of life for a self-determined people in a progressive European society.
E³UDRES² promotes outstanding ideas and concepts for future universities, integrates challenge-based learning, mission-oriented research, human-centered innovation as well as open and engaged knowledge exchange as interrelated core areas with and establishes an exemplary multi-university campus across Europe.
Agriculture is perhaps the most weather/climate dependant sector of the economy, and changes in the weather/climate patterns are strongly affecting it, in terms of the productivity, risk assessment/management, and environmental preservation. From the other, the current farm practices are producing the 1/4th of the global greenhouse gas emissions annually, contributing and further enhancing the climate change, retaining a continuous cycle of altering the climate and impacting the food production system.
The project aims to develop technology for automated visualization of 3D spaces and real-time display of simulation models data, which would serve as a tool in the hands of decision makers when making decisions on the sustainable management of bogs as carbon sinks.
The project "Values in Action: promotion of responsible, secure and educated civil society in Latvia through research and model development" (project Nr. VPP-IZM-2018/1-0013) is implemented within National Research Program " Latvian heritage and future challenges for the country's sustainability".
The overall aim of the project implemented by Vidzeme University of Applied Sciences (ViA) as the Lead Partner, and Riga Stradins University (RSU) as the Project partner, is to strengthen civil society in the development of new policy approaches and to model directions fostering social and territorial cohesion based on European democratic values.
European microcities such as Ventspils and Valmiera play an important role in European economy. They become regional economic hubs, offering comprehensive services, opportunities and a dynamic environment for development. Ventspils and Valmiera are similar in profile. They are the next generation of microcities that use global and digital potential and introduce a series of innovation. Ventspils and Valmiera have formed a strong partnership to address several common challenges.
Goal of the project is to increase international mobility of students and staff as well as international cooperation with partner countries.
The main objective of the project (Nr 188.8.131.52/20/A/002) is to raise awareness of science in the wider community, particularly youth, as well as to present the public with the profession of scientist; to demonstrate the impact of such science as the daily human life of natural science, social science and humanities: to bring researchers closer to the Latvian society and raise interest in research.
Goal of the project: Integration of simulation games in strategic communication studies for the development of future competences. The aim is to create and test pedagogical innovations in strategic communication teaching in three Baltic universities through academic staff training, development of teaching aids, and development of a prototype of an interactive collaborative digital learning and teaching platform.
Summary: In 2020, the joint cooperation between Vidzeme University of Applied Sciences and the Nature Conservation Agency concentrated the resources of both institutions and involved data available to other organizations in order to establish a comprehensive inventory of visitors to specially protected nature territories, which forms a quantitative part of wider monitoring.
