RTU complies with The European Code of Conduct for Research Integrity (ALLEA (2023) The European Code of Conduct for Research Integrity – Revised Edition 2023. Berlin. DOI 10.26356/ECOC) adopted by All European Academies (ALLEA). This document serves the European research community as a framework for self-regulation. The European Commission recognises the Code as the reference document for research integrity for all EU-funded research projects.
Good research practices are based on fundamental principles of research integrity. They guide individuals, institutions, and organisations in their work as well as in their engagement with the practical, ethical, and intellectual challenges inherent in research.
These principles include:
Research at RTU is organized on six research platforms. The objective of research platforms is to ensure multi-faculty and interdisciplinary research in the areas of great significance for the national economy and society. Active and continuous analysis of market needs and commercial potential takes place within the research platforms.
RTU implements 21 accredited Doctoral study programmes in engineering, natural sciences, architecture, social and service sciences
A postdoctoral researcher is a person professionally conducting research after the completion of their doctoral studies (typically a PhD). The ultimate goal of a postdoctoral research position is to pursue additional research, training, or teaching in order to have better skills to pursue a career in academia, research, or any other fields.
The most significant international research in the last 20 years has been conducted within the framework projects of the European Commission and Horizon2020 projects. Since 2015 RTU has been implementing two projects funded by the European Space Agency. In 2016 RTU started the first research project in cooperation with the European Organization for Nuclear Research CERN.
Open Access is the European initiative with the goal to promote and support free open access to electronic resources in education and academic environment.
Every year RTU scientists, academic staff, Doctoral students, and Master students publish their work results in scientific publications in Latvia and abroad.
Technology and Knowledge Transfer Centre (TKTC) is responsible for the protection and management of intellectual property.
This section provides information about all scientific conferences organized by RTU, as well as about research achievements of RTU researchers and students. You will also find information about RTU researchers, who received awards from the European and Latvian institutions.
The Center of High-Energy Physics and Accelerator Technology is a department at the Riga Technical University (RTU). Our researchers are working on various projects in both fundamental and applied science. The fundamental research is carried out at the Compact Muon Solenoid (CMS) experiment, one of the four major experiments at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), the world’s largest and most powerful particle accelerator situated at the European Organisation for Nuclear Research (CERN) near Geneva, Switzerland.
The Riga Technical University Press is a leader in science and engineering publishing in Latvia. Its mission is to produce and deliver scientific literature to the students and faculties of RTU. It was established in 1965 as the publishing and printing department at the Riga Polytechnic Institute, and its major publishing language at the time was Russian. Now its major publishing languages are Latvian and English.
