Njord has advised Latvia's University College of Economics and Culture on the topic of intellectual property protection issues related to student works created within the "Innovation grants for students in interdisciplinary fields of art, culture, economics, and IT (MaKE IT)" European Regional Development Fund project.

Njord reported having assessed whether the works – "written descriptions, drawings, audio recordings, blueprints, designs, and other types of objects: fundamental research, industrial research, and experimental developments – developed by the university and its students within the framework of the first phase of the European Regional Development Fund project can potentially be recognized as intellectual property rights objects."

The firm also advised on who those IP rights would belong to: students, university staff, the university itself, or shared between the parties mentioned; and how the protection of the specific potential intellectual property objects could be implemented.

EKA, the University College of Economics and Culture, is an international, accredited private higher education institution in Riga.
