Challenges of the global economy and scopes of innovation culture development enhanced science and business collaboration in the Klaipeda Region and necessitated foundation of the Science and Technology Park.

KSTP team

Research and development projects in the modern knowledge and innovation based economy are developing rapidly. In the global market competences needed to implement the research and development projects cover a wide range of scientific, administrative and business knowledge. Therefore, the success of research and development projects depends on the competences of the implementation team. Help of local experts in the competitive markets it is not always sufficient, therefore, the KSTP team can support finding required cooperation with foreign specialists. The KSTP is a dynamic international unit ensuring high expert competence and success in project implementation. During the period of its activity the KSTP has created a wide and mature partnership net. Employing the collaboration possibilities and considering fields of research and development projects, the Park staff will create a competent and effective expert group: a "KSTP team" necessary for a project implementation.

Testimonials about 10 years of cooperation with KMTP

In the creation of KSTP one of the main objectives was to create a space, which would be of benefit to students, in particular to the youth studying at Klaipėda University. This is implemented at the Park over and above; I am glad that lots of attention is given to graduates, young enterprises. Here everyone has unlimited possibilities to communicate with each other and learn from experienced business wolfs. This encourages the youth entrepreneurship, leads it forward. KSTP is strong by its project activities - in this area they are unrivalled professionals. The Park very successfully is involved into the creation of the Marine Valley - this project will enable the development of the Park both in the sense of infrastructure and contents.

We have carried out a number of successful joint projects with KSTP. It is not only a reliable partner but also an institution contributing to creation of new jobs. For Lithuania currently it is an issue of topical relevance, therefore, the Park helping the youth to enter the labour market contributes to strengthening of the national economy. I wish that the cooperation between the Park and business were even closer.
