The project participant, the vice director of Riga Distance Education High School in the field of information technologies, Ričards Kalniņš, also took an active part in the seminar.

"This will help me develop both professional and personal competence by participating in the development of new teaching methodologies and technologies that promote innovation and modern approaches in the educational process by combining STEM with the circular economy model."

On the last day of the meeting, in the discussion of project results and next steps, the EKA University of Applied Sciences was represented by Edgars Čerkovskis and the project manager of the EKA Scientific Institution, Dr.oec. Kaspars Šteinbergs.
