CAMART2. Boosting Innovation and Technology Transfer in Latvia

RISE is mentor partner in the CAMART2 project to develop the Institute of Solid State Physics, University of Latvia (ISSP UL), into a stronger actor in the Baltic region, promoting excellence in science and industrial innovation.

CAMART2 is a H2020 Teaming-projec aiming to upgrade ISSP UL into a new, stronger and innovative hub for material science in the Baltic Region. The upgrade is to enable efficient transfer of new materials and technologies into products for commercial and public benefits based on exchange of knowledge and synergy with innovation-intensive Swedish partners - RISE and KTH.

All aspects of relevance for a research organisation are taken into account. High-quality research; upgrade of the educational program; establishment of en strong and sustainable innovation system; strengthening of the regional eco-system for innovation in Latvia; stronger networking and visibility; all within the frame of a deep cultural journey for the organisation, involving the management system and all the employees.

On the regional level, a Collaboration and Technology Transfer Platform is being established with the aim of:

  • Increasing the scientific collaboration between researchers from Latvia, Sweden and other countries;
  • Promoting the mobility of students and researchers between partner organisations and
  • Maximizing the impact on the industrial growth in the region.

The R&D&I activities at ISSP UL focus on:

  • Thin films and coating technologies;
  • Functional materials for electronics and photonics;
  • Nanotechnology, nanocomposites and ceramics;
  • Computational material science by atomistic scale modelling of technologically important materials and devices.

For applications on

  • Nano- and micro-electronics
  • Photonics
  • Energy harvesting and storage
  • Sensors and actuators
  • Functional materials
  • Life Science


Supports the UN sustainability goals
