The participants actively took the opportunity to ask questions, participate in discussions and shared their experience. Daugavpils University in cooperation with Daugavpils Innovation Centre and Daugavpils City Municipality continues to implement the “Informal Continuing Education Program in a Competence-Based Approach for STEM Specialists”.
