On 7 February 2018, the Lithuanian Energy Institute (LEI) and the public institution Central Project Management Agency (CPVA) signed a contract for the implementation of the project No. 01.2.2-CPVA-K-703-01-0022 “Promotion of the activities of the LEI’s Research, Experimental Development and Innovation Transfer Unit (RDITU)“.
The main problem addressed by the project is the insufficient commercialisation of knowledge, technological and innovative solutions at LEI due to the lack of competence of the RDITU staff. To address the problem, it is planned to reinforce RDITU with six expert managers with experience in cooperation with Lithuanian business in the three smart specialisation areas.
The project’s expected results are the development of the RDITU into a Research, Experimental Development and Innovation Transfer Centre, which will have 9 employees at the end of the project, and an increase of 60% in the financial value of the Institute’s contracts with companies in the third year after the project.
