The Design Factory of the Science and Innovation Centre – part of the Design Factory Global Network – is a platform for students that promotes development of innovative ideas, mutual cooperation, establishment of professional contacts with the industry representatives and forms business competencies.
The Design Factory has «theLAB» – an open-type workshop where RTU students, employees and scientists have an opportunity to materialise their inventions by using the technological capabilities of 3D printing, laser cutting and engraving, plotting, large-format printing and other auxiliary tools.
The Design Factory implements the «Innovation Grants for Students» project (ERDF co-financed project No 220.127.116.11/18/A/001 «RTU Innovation Grants for Students»). Students at all levels are offered to engage in different activities and develop their entrepreneurial capacity, collaborate with industry, develop early science-intensive business ideas, receive scholarships and support grants.
When participating in the activities, students can receive a scholarship of EUR 200 per month (for Bachelor’s and Master’s students) or EUR 228 per month (for Doctoral students). To apply for the scholarship, a student must be making good academic progress and having no study debts.
Further information and application for the activities is available at idejubanka.lv.
