About LEI / Mission
Lithuanian Energy Institute (LEI) is internationally recognized energy-related research, development and innovation (R&D&I) competence center. LEI is state budgetary institution
Mission of the Institute
• to perform energy, thermal, measurement, material engineering and social sciences (energy economy) research;
• to create innovative technologies; to perform scientific and applied research, to participate in study processes; to transfer applied research results to industry and business;
• to consult governmental, public and private institutions and enterprises on the issues related with Lithuanian sustainable energy development;
• to actively participate (together with Higher Education institutions) in preparing specialists for Lithuanian Science and Economy.
• To perform long-term international level fundamental and applied R&D&I activities, which are necessary for sustainable development of Lithuanian Energy Sector and other Lithuanian economy branches as well as integration into the European energy system and European Research Area;
• To cooperate with business, governmental and public entities, to transfer knowledge to technically and commercially beneficial processes and facilities, ensuring development of innovative energy technologies, economy and security of energy sites and systems, efficient usage and energy sources, environmental pollution reduction and climate warming moderation;
• To spread scientific knowledge in society, to promote innovation and knowledge based Lithuanian economy development;
• To actively participate in EU R&D&I programmes and international projects, expand cooperation with internationally recognised research centers.
