Opening prospects for science and innovative business in CERN incubators in Lithuania
In the near future, this month, the agreement between Lithuania and the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) on setting up business incubators in Vilnius and Kaunas has to be signed. The signing of this agreement is important not only for Lithuania, the associated CERN member, but also for the whole of Central and Eastern Europe, as the development of these incubators in Europe means that for our and other countries’ researchers will be given the opportunity to participate in the research programs of this organization, to share their experience, to use inventions, database, develop innovative business companies in the fields of photonics, information technology, medicine also physics educators to improve their knowledge and transfer it to the younger generation. “Places like CERN contribute to the kind of knowledge that not only enriches humanity, but also provides the wellspring of ideas that become the technologies of the future,”- says CERN CEO Dr. Fabiola Gianotti.
Establishment of business incubators for the integration of science and business into innovation, started on 2012th in ten European Union countries. It is expected that their establishment in two cities of Lithuania, that generate most innovations, will bring tangible benefits to Lithuanian laser technologies companies by creating optimal conditions for international cooperation in transfer and development of new technologies.
