The English edition of the “LAS YEARBOOK” published

In April, the “Latvian Academy of Sciences YEARBOOK 2024”, prepared by a group of authors, was published in English. This is already the fifth publication, which has been created in accordance with a different concept to the traditional yearbook or activity report of the Latvian Academy of Sciencies that is released in Latvian. The yearbook emphasizes current topics in Latvian and world science, as well as the most significant achievements and events in Latvia in various fields of science. The authors of the articles are scientists and science policy makers, as well as public servants, representatives of culture and art.

The edition of 2024 offers readers three main themes: the intersection of humanism and pragmatism, science for life and life sciences, energy and the energy of natural sciences. The issue concludes with an article by Pēteris Stradiņš, dedicated to the memory of academician Jānis Stradiņš and the Enlightenment movement and its most prominent representative in Latvia, Gotthardt Friedrich Stender, and tells about the message encoded in the sculptural ensemble "Gates of Light" inaugurated in Sunākste in the fall of 2023.
