Brookhaven Lab/Stony Brook University physicist Anatoly Frenkel with postdoc Janis Timoshenko in collaboration with scientists of the Institute of Solid State Physics, University of Latvia – A. Anspoks, A. Cintins, A. Kuzmin, and J. Purans, use approach analogous to facial-recognition technology to track atomic-scale rearrangements relevant to phase changes, catalytic reactions, and more.

Results of Deep Science Hackathon 2018 hosted at ISSP UL

The bracelet in which an optical sensor is embedded for measuring the vitamin D in the human organism. In the competition of eight ideas, the jury found this idea to be the most mature to be implemented as a business project. Deep Science Hackathon 2018 was organised by the Institute of Solid State Physics, University of Latvia (ISSP UL) and was the first activity within Materize, which is the new platform of the Institute for the export of scientific services and cooperation with industry in the field of high technologies.

Materize - new brand of the Institute of Solid State Physics, UL for the cooperation with the industry will be presented during Deep Science Hackathon

In order to promote export of scientific services in the area of innovative materials based technologies and cooperation with the industry, on 18 May at 18:00, Institute of Solid State Physics, UL (ISSP UL) will present its new brand Materize. During the event, start will be given also for it’s first activity – Deep Science Hackathon.

Seminar about Industrie 4.0 – the digital revolution in industry of our times

In order to better develop our projects, in the modern context, it is important to understand the concept of Industry 4.0, which is one of the priorities of EU. Everyone to know and understand the challenges of digitization, not only in relation with data and IT, but also with the serious challenges of material sciences for sensors and equipment in the world of the Internet-of-Things. Maybe we can help with our knowledge!

COST TO-BE Fall Meeting 2017 in Riga

The TO-BE Fall Meeting 2017, organised by the Institute of Solid State Physics University of Latvia (ISSP UL), is being held from 11th to 13th September 2017 in Riga, Latvia.

The meeting aims to establish a network of researchers working in the field of the science and technology of transition-metal oxides and to help them sharing their expertise, defining future strategies, and clustering for the future funding opportunities.

Progress in the first 6 months of the project

After successful launch of the project, a number of activities has taken place. Project organisation has been set up by appointing the leaders of all work packages, and the initial appointing of the key staff to execute the tasks in coordination with the project partners KTH and RISE Acreo.

Definition of the new organisation for the institute is under way, refining of the strategy for science and innovation, setting up Open access procedures and processes, as well as overall outreach organisation.

Number of the courses for ISSP UL staff has taken place, including courses on the process of innovations and innovations fostering culture, H2020 proposal and impact writing course, and IPR management.

VIDEO: Project Opening Ceremony

The biggest project in the history of Latvian science to date has been launched, but you have a great opportunity to hear what project leaders and partners have to say before the long journey. Bon voyage!
