In November, a new European Social Fund (ESF) project “Strengthening academic staff of Transport and Telecommunication Institute capacity in strategic specialisation areas” started at TSI. The project is funded by the European Union (85%) and the Latvian state (15%).
The main goals of this project are:
- The involvement of doctoral students in academic work.
- Attraction of academic staff from abroad.

The project involves the participation of academic and administrative staff of all three faculties. The project is scheduled for a period of 24 months until October 30, 2020.
Workshops on the organization of the project will be held soon.
