Education Innovation Laboratory invites everyone interested in the development of higher education in Latvia to attend the 2023 program opening event “Light Up Education” on May 19 at Latvian National Library. It will start with keynote speeches from renowned guests from Massachusetts Institute of Technology and continue with the opportunity to network with like-minded people committed to innovating higher education in Latvia.


11:00 Registration, coffee and networking

12:00 Opening remarks

12:20 Educational institutions as hubs for the regional development – Anjali Sastry, Faculty Director of MIT J-WEL 

12:50 Keynote “Leadership and Innovation Development with MIT Bootcamps” – Hanna Adeyema, Director of MIT Bootcamps

13:30 Lunch and networking

14:30 Closed onboarding for program participants


We highly recommend attending the event in person in order to maximize the value by networking and exchanging reflections with other attendees about the education scene. However, if that’s not possible, the event will also be live-streamed on Riga Business School’s Facebook account. To watch the event online, registration is not necessary.

The goal of the event is to foster a community of ambitious people interested in the development of higher education in Latvia, enable inter-institutional networking, as well as to celebrate the second season of the Leader Program and the launch of the Strategic Education Innovation Project Support Program.
