International Scientific Conference "EcoTech2024"


Linnaeus Eco-Tech has been an academic tradition at Linnaeus University in Kalmar, Sweden, every second year since 1997. One of the conference’s key objective is to encourage research and education collaboration among Baltic Sea region countries in order to achieve long-term sustainability. Environmental challenges have become increasingly visible as they have progressed from a local to a regional to a global concern.

14th Annual International Scientific Conference EcoTech 2024 will be held in Jelgava, November 19–22, 2024. Latvia University of Life Sciences and Technologies, Jelgava, Latvia.

It is with great delight that we welcome you to the 14th Annual International Scientific Conference "EcoTech 2024" here at the Latvia University of Life Sciences and Technologies. We believe that the conference will offer an excellent opportunity to exchange information and to discuss future trends between experienced and new researchers.

It is proposed to invite contributions in Knowledge-Intensive Bioeconomy research fields:

Exclusion of Russian Federation and Belarus from collaboration with LBTU. The war of Russian Federation against Ukraine and threatening of many other countries, as well as supportive actions of the war by Republic of Belarus are unacceptable by international democratic communities. Latvia University of Life Sciences and Technologies has terminated collaboration with any Russian and Belarussian institutions and their academical and scientifical staff.
