Scientific research and experimental development projects implemented by the University’s researchers contribute to the country’s economic, social and cultural growth and use the latest scientific knowledge and inventions to solve the issues relevant to the society.

KTU is one of research, development and innovation (RDI) leaders in Lithuania. Each year it invests in research in breakthrough fields and aims to transfer the newly developed knowledge and technologies into studies and non-formal education. In this way KTU contributes to the knowledge-based welfare of the local community.

High international level researchers undertaking scientific research in the areas of physical sciences, biomedicine, technologies, social sciences and humanities are working at KTU laboratories. KTU researchers train and develop their potential by engaging in interdisciplinary research across different areas of science on international level.

The University’s main objective is to become one of 400 best research universities in the world by RDI achievements until 2020, to direct and to strengthen RDI activities to have considerable impact on Lithuanian and foreign society and business.

RDI strategy is directly implemented by the University’s science institutes and faculties, as well as other responsible divisions.

All RDI infrastructure is assigned to Open Access Centre (OAC) and managed via RDI laboratory centres, laboratories of the science institutes, concentrating research equipment in the large formations to increase the efficiency of the infrastructure.

The annual RDI indicators and operational plans are prepared by the academic divisions and managers of the RDI technology transfer, approved by the University’s Rector; the Vice-Rector for Research is responsible for supervision of their implementation.
