On October 14, more than 20 students from all over Latvia participated in the "EIT Food" Career Day, which was organized by "EIT Food Hub Latvia" in cooperation with RTU Science and Innovation Center and "Agrolats Group".
On the career day, high school students who are fascinated by innovative solutions, agricultural technology and sustainability topics, as well as their teachers, had the opportunity to go to Tērvete, getting to know the cooperation company of "Agrolats Group" A/S "Agrofirma Tērvete". The young people had the opportunity to meet the representatives of the Group's companies to learn more about their everyday life - from personnel management, product development and marketing to biogas production and innovation management. The participants observed the application of science and technology, as well as the operation of circular principles, in a real environment.
Most of the students agreed that the Career Day excursion was a great success and they also gained several valuable insights:
"The circular economy is very beneficial and sustainable. It is important to think about the future".
"Don't give up, don't be afraid to suddenly change your profession. Communicate and speak for new opportunities”.
“Education has value. It is important to choose a job that you like".
"Agriculture is a promising sector".
We thank "EIT Food HUB Latvia" and RTU Science and Innovation Center for the opportunity and all participants for the valuable day!
