Testimonials about 10 years of cooperation with KMTP

Each time when I cross the door of KSTP, I cannot stop wondering how many things are ongoing here. Sometimes I feel as if in a meadow, where a lot of bees are humming. Being at KSTP you seemingly may do nothing, however, just being here you are stuck with those pollen - thoughts, ideas and good energy.

I can firmly state that KSTP is an institution where the ideas are generated not for remaining on paper or deep in a drawer. They are effectively implemented, there is always a look to the future, and a further road is foreseen to ideas. This is a feature of a solid and responsible institution. As a resident of Klaipėda, not indifferent to the present and, even more to the future, I wish that KSTP as it was, so it also would be one of the most active, dynamic and creative economy engines not only at national level but also at wider spaces.
