Dear Reader,
The publication „Scientific Research
Directory” reflects the extensive
research activities carried out at the
Riga Technical University (RTU). It
comprises general information about
RTU research units – departaments and
institutes, the main research topics,
scientific projects and academic and
research staff as well as about the
technical basis available. The issue
includes a list of Promotion Councils
of RTU and a list of Dissertations
defended by RTU scientists during
2007-2009.
Excellence of scientific research
activities is one of the main strategic
aims of RTU. I believe that it is due to
the results of the research work that in
the nearest future RTU will be
regarded as one of the most advanced
and prestigious universities in the
Baltic Sea region and will become an
innovation centre not only for the
development of Latvia but also for the
whole Baltic region.
I wish RTU scientists a lot of exciting
scientific discoveries!
The results of scientific research
activities at RTU reviewed in this
Directory allow to conclude that the
research work at RTU has had a
number of positive developments: the
increased
number
of
projects,
improved quality of projects and
infrastructure of scientific research ,
favourable environment for scientific
career
develpment
and
wider
international research collaboration.
RTU researchers are successfully
„transferring”
the
obtained
competencies to the study process and
to production which can be concluded
from the increasing number of
defended dissertations and obtained
patents.
Scientific research work carried out by
RTU researchers is the cornerstone of
industrial development and growth of
national economy of Latvia. I am
confident that RTU researchers will
continue their successful mission and
ensure the high quality research which
is so vital for the future of national
economy of Latvia.
I wish you a lot of energy and plenty of
innovative ideas!

FOREWORD
Riga Technical University (RTU) is an accredited, internationally recognised
university of European level providing high quality study programmes in
Engineering, Technologies, Natural and Environmental Sciences, Architecture and
Economics and Business Administration and carrying out extensive scientific research
activities.
Scientific research is an integral part of the study process and is implemented
in all 119 study programmes of different scientific branches. The priority areas for
research set by RTU in Engineering Sciences are Power Engineering, Materials
Science, Computer Science, Information Technologies and Mechanical Engineering
and in Social Sciences – Engineering Economy.
Scientific research is carried out by proficient and competitive academic staff
– RTU researchers have developed a number of innovative inventions and are
Latvian, European and US patent holders. Researchers are provided with advanced
scientific equipment. RTU promotes intellectual potential and increased
competitiviness.
One of the most important objectives of RTU research is to strengthen the
links between science and production and to increase the commercialisation of new
technologies as well as to support innovation which is the key driving force of
economy. RTU offers favourable and encouraging environment for innovation and
implements various projects of technology transfer. Despite financial pressure RTU
with the support from Ministry of Economy founded Business Incubator in order to
enhance the development of new, innovative enterprises and to ensure support for
their first steps.
RTU scientific research activities receive funding from various sources: State
Budget, Latvian Council of Science, Ministry of Education and Science, national and
field research programmes, different local and foreign research programmes,
European Union (EU) and other international programmes. .
The development of study process and new study methods and teaching
materials, improvement of skills of academic and research staff, advanced information
and technology transfer, purchase of new scientific equipment, more effective work of
Doctoral Studies Department, favourable environment for research and studies and
improved services of libraries are the results of the support from the European Union.
Riga Technical University has been the most active among educational institutions in
Latvia in implementation of projects funded by European Social Fund (ESF) – 87
projects worth 10.3 million LVL , which is a considerable input in the development of
the university.
The project of key importance to education of young generation was „Support
to doctoral studies at RTU” as a result of which the number of doctoral theses
defended in 2008 was 43 which is by 11 dissertations more than in 2007.
RTU is the only multi-branch technical universiy in Latvia. Presently it is the
second university in relation to the number of students. In comparison with other
institutions of higher education in Latvia RTU has the biggest number of state funded
study places (over 7 thousand).
5
Currently Riga Technical University comprises the following faculties and
structural units: Faculty of Architecture and Urban Planning, Faculty of Civil
Engineering, Faculty of Computer Science and Information Technology, Faculty of
Electronics and Telecommunication, Faculty of Power and Electrical Engineering,
Faculty of Engineering Economy and Management, Faculty of Materials Science and
Applied Chemistry, Faculty of Transport and Mechanical Engineering, Institute of
Humanities, Institute of Languages, Riga Business School, Scientific Library and
public agency Institute of Inorganic Chemistry.
RTU comprises 35 institutes, 49 departments, 35 divisions, 29 laboratories
and 29 research centres. There are over 400 doctoral students, 900 academic staff of
which 500 are researchers. The number of staff involved in research work is 867. The
present enrolment of students is 17 000. Majority of students are enroled in academic
and Professional programmes leading to the Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees.
RTU is a leading research institution in Latvia in all Engineering branches.
This biannual Directory presents an overview of RTU scientific research
activities in 2009-2010.
More information about the research activities at RTU is available at the Research
Department.

The collection of the Scientific Library is being developed in accordance with the areas of RTU
academic and research activities.
The library provides readers with an access to a collection of about 1.9 million printed items on
Natural Sciences, Engineering, Architecture, Economics and other scientific areas. The collection
comprises also e-books and databases. The holdings are located in stacks, lending departments and
reading-rooms in the Central Library and in 8 branch libraries. The unified catalogue system reflects all
holdings, separate loans and reading-room holdings. The bibliographical request services provide access
to the literature sources required by readers. Since 1994 all Library acquisitions are available through the
electronic catalogue (www.zb.rtu.lv). Gradually all items of the collection will be entered in the electronic
catalogue. If the book or periodicals required are not available in the RTU Scientific Library, they can be
borrowed from another library through the inter-library loan system. All information resources offered by
the RTU Scientific Library as well as access to online catalogue, to bibliographic database and to
subscribed databases can be found on www.rtu.lv. The computer network of the Central Library and all
branch libraries have internet connection, allowing the users to search information through World Wide
Web and access to different popular scientific databases. Wireless access is available in all premises.
Databases can be accessed through the RTU intranet as well as online in ORTUS portal
. Visur ir nodrošināta bezvadu interneta piekļuve. Datu bāzes ir pieejamas visā RTU datortīklā,
kā arī attālināti portālā ORTUS.
In 2008 RTU Scientific Library had 19 330 registered users, 1 439 956 visits (in person, via
phone or virtual) and handed out 352 680 printed items.
Since 1994 the Scientific Library is a member of the Latvian Association of Academic Libraries
(LATABA), and since 1996 – a member of the International Association of Technological University
Libraries (IATUL).
