Science valleys


At present, five research centres are being developed in Lithuania. The term ‘valley’ has been used to describe an area of business potential which incorporates research, study and knowledge, concentrated in one place.

Studies + education + business = VALLEY: the core of economics and innovation in education, studies and knowledge giving the ability to compete at an international level

In these centres of education, studies and business students will be able to prepare final papers for a Bachelor’s and Master’s qualification and write their theses. They will be able to perform more extensive scientific research in the laboratories and they will also be able to get involved in academic and industrial activity. The upshot of all this is that students raise their qualifications and use the base of academic research more effectively.
