On March 23-25, 2020, the 12th International Conference on the Establishment of Cooperation between Companies and Institutions in the Nordic Countries, the Baltic Sea Region and the World Eco-Tech 2020 was digitally arranged and held in Sweden.
Linnaeus Eco-Tech has been an academic tradition since 1997. The conference is organized by Linnaeus University in Kalmar, Sweden, every second year. One of the main goals of the conference is to promote research and education cooperation among the countries around the Baltic Sea towards sustainability. It has been more and more obvious that the environmental issues have risen from local through regional to global concern, and play a leading role in the conference.
The title of the presentation was “Towards the formula of peat-free soil conditioner” by Zane Vincevica-Gaile, co-authors: Karina Stankevica, Maris Kļavins, Stanley Lutts. Participants from more than 20 countries were presenting their research. Apart from the Baltic Sea and European countries also several quite exotic countries such as Brazil, Guatemala, Ghana, Costa Rica, Nepal were represented.
