Since 2012 International Relations Department of Riga Technical University (RTU IRD) organizes annual International Week in order to find new partners and strengthen the existing cooperation. The event results in new partnership agreements, which are further successfully used by RTU students, academic personnel and employees.
International Relations Department (IRS) has 18 years of experience in organizing summer schools. The first summer school «The Bridges We Build, the Bridges We Cross» was organized in 1998 in cooperation with the German Academic Exchange Service. For two weeks, 30 students from Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia were sharing their study experience learning about geographic, political and economic landscape of the Baltic Region.
