This year, for the first time in the history of the CYSENI conference, the event was held online. Due to the challenges of the epidemiological situation, the organizers sought new solutions: the new website was launched and adapted to accommodate an online format.
However, the challenges had also led to many positive changes. Through RTO Lithuania – an association of non-university research and technology organizations, we, the Lithuanian Energy Institute, the Lithuanian Research Centre for Agriculture and Forestry as well as the Center for Physical Sciences and Technology established a partnership in co-organizing the CYSENI conference. This partnership allowed us to expand the topics of the conference and it seems like all of our work has paid off because this year, we had a record-high number of presentations – 178 by 173 participants from 29 countries!
On behalf of the CYSENI 2021 Organizing Committee, we thank all the contributors, participants, reviewers and keynote speakers! Until the next time!
