Conference “Innovative Social Services”
Koncertzāle "Valmiera", Leona Paegles iela 10, Valmiera, LV-4201
10:00 - 17:00
During the Vidzeme Innovation Week this year, we will also discuss innovations in the provision of social services. Listening to industry experts and opinion leaders, we will try to answer the questions: How good social services are formed? Who initiates them? Why do some of these services evolve and some “die”? Does technology help deliver social services? In what way? /Exactly how? How open are companies and organizations in the industry in implementing new and innovative services?
Vidzeme Innovation conference "Responsible innovation"

09:00 - 18:30
Are the bio-economy, circular economy, open data and innovative services only hot topics everybody use, or are they really hiding the answers? Are all of them seemingly unfamiliar, just on the agenda of individual countries, or do we have our own Latvian examples, which are both innovative and environmentally friendly and relevant to society and environmental ecosystem? What we have and what we lack? Does Vidzeme have power now and will it have power in the future? Let us talk about those resources that are seemingly numerous, but which still conceal unrealized potential.
