        R2B: Research-to-Business. From Data to Business Added Value

        The 4th Open Workshop “Research-to-Business”


        Our Society and Economy are evolving in the digital transformation era that embraces our life in all aspects of cultural, social, technological, and economical changes. It is prone to the case of information intensive business processes which are driven by the large scale integration of digital technologies into city infrastructure, traffic management systems, business environment etc. Gathering good data streams and correlating them through powerful analytics will amplify bottom line results.On the other side, digital technology is impacting on nature conservation in different ways, creating possibilities and problems, as well as winners and losers. We believe that more multi-sector, multi-discipline conferences and workshops will follow to galvanise a digital community of practice, research and policy.

        What is Data Analytics?

        The science of using data to build models that lead to better decisions that add value to society and individuals, to companies and institutions.

        Riga, Latvia

        Riga is the capital of the Republic of Latvia. Thanks to its geographical location, Riga has wonderful trade, cultural and tourist facilities. Whilst able to offer all the benefits of a modern city, Riga has preserved its historical charm. It’s especially famous for its medieval part – Old Riga.

        Old Riga still preserves many mute witnesses of bygone times. Its old narrow streets, historical monuments, organ music at one of the oldest organ halls in Europe attract guests of our city. In 1998 Old Riga was included into the UNESCO list of world cultural heritage.
