International Conferences

Scientific institutes and faculties of Liepaja University organise scientific conferences at international and national level in all University study and research fields. Concurrently with the traditional conferences in the branches of humanities and pedagogy also conferences in social work, psychology, new media art etc have been organised during the recent years.   


Cherishing the recently established traditions, lately a Week of Science and Creativity is organised every spring during which also “Students’ Scientific Conference” takes place.
