XXV International Scientific Conference of Turiba University


The first decades of this century have been spent in the shadow of social, political, economic and environmental changes, which create new challenges for countries, organizations and societies and for each individual. The challenges we face on a daily basis create not only opportunities, but conditions in which the concept of security acquires completely new, previously unknown contours. We are currently in an era of insecurity, which requires appropriate action scenarios, technological solutions and changes in thinking.

The age of insecurity is characterized by risks that must be learned to anticipate, assess, manage and mitigate their possible negative effects. The ability to think outside of the usual solutions, the readiness to look for alternative solutions to unprecedented situations and the courage to create new approaches, models and action scenarios is the task of the moment, which aims to ensure future growth in all areas affecting public safety and well-being.

This year, Turiba University's conference is organized by the Faculty of International Tourism. However, the conference's theme will be interesting for any entrepreneur, lecturer or student. The event will delve into challenges within the business environment and broader development topics.
During the morning plenary session, professionals and lecturers from diverse industries will share insights and engage in discussions about the current challenges in Latvia that every entrepreneur and member of society encounters.
In the afternoon, the work will continue in the thematic sessions, where researchers and students will present their research and industry news.
