The fifth edition of the 'Deep Tech Atelier' event taking place in Riga from 20 to 21 April, will focus on space and photonics technologies. At the event, speakers will share their insights on the latest trends, scientific breakthroughs and opportunities to attract funding across five stages, reports Labs of Latvia

The conference will be opened by Fabrice Testa from Luxembourg, who has developed business projects in the space sector, but in recent years has been more active as an investor, sought-after technology speaker and book author.

“Latvia’s economic development depends to a large extent on how productive our companies are. One of the prerequisites for increasing productivity is the use of science-intensive technologies and investment in research and development. To open the curtain on what is happening in this sector, we invite all interested parties to register for the Deep Tech Atelier conference,” says Kaspars Rožkalns, Director General at the Investment and Development Agency of Latvia (LIAA).

The Deep Tech Atelier conference is a meeting point for entrepreneurs, scientists, investors, international and local industry experts, technology developers, public administrations and technology enthusiasts.

The conference will focus on attracting investment, commercialising science, company experiences, new platforms for collaboration and other topics that can serve as a source of inspiration for anyone looking for new directions and seeing opportunities for development in areas related to knowledge-based entrepreneurship.
