The partnership with the Trondheim Science Centre was established in 2016. During several years of cooperation, there was an opportunity to familiarize with the work of Norwegian colleagues, which contributed to the improvement and development of the Daugavpils Innovation Centre. The “Talent Program” implemented by the Trondheim Science Centre is a good example of how to develop and improve young people's creative competences and entrepreneurial skills. In turn, the “Inventors' Festival” is a tool for communication between science and society and its involvement in the world of science and innovation. This experience will also be transferred to Daugavpils Innovation Centre.

Training is implemented within the project “Development of Innovation Centre in Daugavpils”, project No NFI/IC/VIAA/2020/4, Contract No 9-20.2.2.1/4, which is implemented within the framework of the activity “Innovation Centres” of the program “Research and Education” of the European Economic Area Financial Mechanism and the Norwegian Financial Mechanism for the period 2014-2021. Project cooperation partners are Trondheim Science Centre (Norway) and Daugavpils University. Within the framework of the project, the project partners will develop and implement educational programs for learners and teachers, organize experience exchange visits and seminars
