2nd of February

Representatives from Lithuanian Maritime Academy - Deputy Director for Academic Affairs Rima Mickiene and Deputy Director for Research and Innovation Dr. Justas Žaglinskis - paid a friendly visit to RTU Latvian Maritime Academy. During the meeting, the representatives of RTU LMA and Lithuanian Maritime Academy agreed on closer cooperation in the implementation of lecturer and student mobility and the development of scientific research.

Both sides agreed on joint participation in Erasmus+ Blended Intensive Programme (BIP) projects to promote mobility of lecturers and students, as well as to provide support to students interested in study courses that can be provided by the partner university in addition to their existing study plan. «This is a great opportunity to offer students the content they are most interested in, in addition to gaining invaluable international experience. For example, this would give marine engineering students additional opportunities to study robotics, programming, or courses related to marine electrical automation, which will be very useful in the workplace,» says Rima Mickiene. Steps will be taken to implement this idea in the near future.
RTU LMA and the Lithuanian Maritime Academy also have joint plans to develop science by organizing annual international scientific conference on current developments in maritime affairs and by relaunching the «Journal of Maritime Transport and Engineering», a collection of scientific research articles on various aspects of maritime affairs, including cargo transportation and logistics, maritime safety, climate neutrality, maritime education and other topics of interest to the industry.
Earlier in the week representatives from Lithuanian Maritime Academy also visited RTU Faculty of Engineering Economics and Management to discuss further cooperation in the framework of projects, research and the new specialization «Port and Maritime Transport Logistics» within the study programme «Business Logistics».
