On April 21, the Advisory Board under the supervision of Riga Business School has approved 56 representatives from higher education institutions and businesses, and government officials to participate in the Leadership Programme. It also approved six education innovation projects, led by 18 representatives from Latvian universities, for further development.
Both initiatives are aimed at creating contemporary education processes, governance, and effective changes in Latvia, with solutions developed in collaboration with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT).
Thanks to the programs, 74 leaders of Latvian education, public administration, and businesses will gain new skills, learn from best practices and receive expert support for implementing their ideas in Latvia. “The large number of participants is evidence that Latvia has many determined professionals who are ready to work actively to strengthen the quality of education and significantly improve the culture of education governance and development,” emphasizes Santa Šmīdlere, Deputy State Secretary of the Ministry of Education and Science.
Both the Leader Programs, and the Educational Innovation Project Support Programme are administered by the Education Innovation Laboratory, established earlier this year and led by Riga Business School as a structural unit of Riga Technical University (RTU) in collaboration with the MIT J-WEL laboratory. The Ministry of Education and Science is the financier of this project.
AmCham is a place to meet representatives of other industries and understand the business environment.
