Board of experts

Innovation is the work of a team where meeting the right people, their knowledge, and experience is important.

To create the best content for Innovation Week, a Vidzeme Innovation Week Expert Board was set up in late 2022. The Board brings together representatives from different sectors and areas; innovation is a day-to-day element for them. Their experience and advice have helped to highlight the key topics and questions to which we will find answers in Vidzeme's Innovation Week 2023 events.
