The objective of the University of Latvia is to develop a world-class research centre, at the same time providing research-based and innovative studies in a wide spectrum of sciences. The knowledge and technologies created at the UL are highly acknowledged internationally.

One of the UL research priorities today is to support young scientists and promote the establishment of new research groups; however, the University also focuses on matters and challenges like knowledge spillover effects and commercialization of scientific findings, science communication, internationally significant research results, development of research infrastructure, and support of research projects dedicated to the Latvian language and culture.

Research at the University of Latvia has resulted in substantial achievements in biology, chemistry, medicine, history, computer sciences, physics, social sciences and other fields (for example, the use of moss in perfumery, new genetic variations of somatostatin receptors, artificial olfaction sensor for lung cancer diagnostics and others).

The University of Latvia Innovation Centre, founded in 2006, plays a great role in promoting UL scientists and their involvement in the national economy by informing the public about the UL innovations and scientific solutions, coordinating the cooperation of scientists and industry, and facilitating development of high-tech enterprises, as well as gathering the information about the demand for research services and advising scientists about potential cooperation opportunities.
