The Shadow Day at the ISSP UL!

On February 13, 2019 the Junior Achievement Career Education Program – Shadow Day – for school children from grade 1st to 12th took place. In this day children attending a chosen job place and watching a daily work of the certain profession. In this year our institute’s staff were shadowed by 19 inquisitive young persons from grade 3 to 11, who followed every step of the Institute's Lead Researchers, Researchers, Research Assistant, Clean Room development and maintenance specialist, and Scientific secretary. 

Kick-off meeting of the Eurofusion enabling research project AETA

Today (18.01.2019) at the Institute of Solid State Physics, University of Latvia (ISSP UL) the kick-off meeting of the EUROfusion program enabling research project “Advanced experimental and discovery of defect evolution and structural disordering in optical and dielectric materials for fusion applications – AETA” was held.

The visit of the Programme Manager of EUROfusion European consortium Tony Donné to Latvia has started

Today (13.12.18) programme manager of the EUROFusion European consortium Tony Donné has started his visit to Latvia by meeting the president of  the Latvian Academy of Sciences Ojārs Spārītis and by giving a lecture on the Status and prospects of European Fusion Research. T. Donné also met the State Secretary of the Ministry of Education and Science Līga Lejiņa, Rector of the University of Latvia Indriķis Muižnieks to converse about funding and successful further cooperation as well as visited the Academic Center of the University of Latvia.

We are proud!

Latvia hosts the leader of the largest scientific programme in the Europe

On December 13-14, 2018, Tony Donné, EUROfusion programme manager, will arrive in Latvia to visit the state officials and project executives. During his visit, T. Donné will meet with the President of the Latvian Academy of Sciences (LAS) Ojārs Spārītis, the rector of the University of Latvia Indriķis Muižnieks, visit the Academic Centre of University of Latvia, the Ministry of Education and Science and the Institute of Solid State Physics of the University of Latvia (ISSP UL).

European Commission officer and reviewers visited ISSP UL!

The Research Executive Agency of the European Commission organised review of our institute’s largest project CAMART² on October 25 – 26, 2018. The objectives of the review were to assess the progress of the work plan, all deliverables completed, the objectives still relevant, resources planned and spent appropriately and other qualitative and quantitative indicators that are crucial to successful project implementation.

Congratulations!

A project Advanced Experimental and Theoretical Analysis of Defect Evolution and Structural Disordering in Optical and Dielectric Materials for Fusion Applications (AETA) submitted by leading researcher of our institute Dr. Anatoli Popov has been funded by the EUROfusion Enabling Research Program.
