Research plays a key role in raising European competitiveness at the world's
level. It is essential that all European Member States participate in this
process. Together with other new Member States, Lithuania strives to
contribute
to joint efforts in strengthening the European Research Area.
On 1st May 2004, the European Union welcomed Lithuania as a new Member State.
This historical occasion is also a great challenge and opportunity for
Lithuanian scientists.
Who are Lithuanian researchers today? Is their academic work useful for
Lithuania's and Europe’s progress and their society? Biotechnologies,
nanotechnologies, new energy sources, laser technologies - potentials existing
in Lithuanian universities, institutes and laboratories.
The main objective of the event is to present Lithuanian’s research potential
as well as current achievements in research developments. The Lithuanian
Research Forum will also provide an exchange platform for future co-operation
and networking between the stakeholders from the EU institutions and
Lithuania.

We are looking forward to welcome you on this event!
