VHTP Space library

At the end of 2010 foundation Ventspils High Technology Park within the framework of project “Developmental Activities of Space Technology Cluster”, which co-financed by the Ministry of Economics of Republic of Latvia, purchased books and other cognitive resources and materials related to space.

In the new library there are books, video materials, different leaflets and other informative materials related to space and satellite technology. Library includes literature that shows the inception of space industry in different countries, as well as the development opportunities and prospects.

The materials in library also show different solutions and strategies for launching a business in the space technology field.

The Space library is available not only for all the companies and institutions of Latvian Space Technology Cluster, but also for anyone who is interested in space, just by contacting the coordinator of the cluster Dina Davida.
