Gundars Mežinskis, Inna Juhņeviča

In this article, information about Latvian companies whose technologies are based on silicate, high temperature materials and inorganic nanomaterials was gathered from a data base of commercial companies Lursoft. The most significant changes that occurred at the Department of Silicate, High Temperature and Inorganic Nanomaterials (SHTIN) and Institute of Silicate Materials (ISM) of the Faculty of Materials Science and Applied Chemistry, Riga Technical University are summarized and analysed. Information about the number of bachelor’s, master’s degree theses, and doctoral theses defended at the department of SHTIN is provided. The changes in the research funding and scientific research topics during the period from 2008 to 2018 are considered. The strategic objectives of the ISM for teaching and research work for the next 5 years are defined.
