Inventions and Inventors of Latvia

In this Internet page you will find information about the most important inventions
created in Latvia, the most outstanding inventors and about the patent system of Latvia.

The page was presented on the 29th of November, 1999

In this Web site you will find information about the most important inventions created in Latvia, the most outstanding inventors and about the patent system of Latvia.

There are several goals of the current Web site:

  • to acquaint the interested ones with the most outstanding inventions created in Latvia and their authors - Latvian inventors
  • to provide an insight into the past and present of the Latvia's inventing potential
  • to give information for pupils about the technical creative work of Latvia

This Web site along with Internet pages about Latvian scientists and Latvian science forms a united page complex about the scientific and technological potential of Latvia.

We (the authors of the project) laid a special stress on the fact that inventors from different branches would be represented here: including chemists, physicists, engineers, physicians, selectionists... The Latvian nation consists of people of different nationalities and so are the inventors represented here - all of them have enhanced the fame of Latvia and they still continue to do that.

The fate of the Latvian nation has not been easy during the 20th century: wars and foreign totalitarian regimes have killed many Latvians and scattered our nation all over the world. Many of those who were forced to leave Latvia gained distinguished achievements also abroad - some of them have been represented in this Internet page as well.

At the moment (November, 1999) information on 54 inventors and 10 inventions have been collected in this Web site. Certainly these are far not all the outstanding ones…
