VILNIUS TECH - Vilnius Gediminas Technical University

VGTU’s mission is to develop a publicly responsible, creative, competitive individual who is receptive to science, the latest technologies and cultural values; to promote scientific progress, social and economic well-being; and to create value that ensures the development of both Lithuania and the region in a global context. So, in addition to instructing the next generation of engineers, researchers and global thought leaders, VGTU has a prominent role in research and innovation activities in the region. VGTU has 13 research institutes, 3 research centres and 44 research laboratories. The participation in national and international projects and collaboration with business sector, shows the capabilities of VGTU to establish close ties with other research institutions and the business sector. At the institutional level, a variety of measures have been taken to foster RRI, such as the guidelines on Open Access to Research Data and Scientific Publications and ethical code of conduct for research and teaching. Through these documents, VGTU supports the principles of the EU for open access to publicly funded research outputs and the accessibility of these outputs without any financial, technical or legal restrictions. VGTU holds a long-term experience in engagement of quadruple helix stakeholders and partnerships with local high-schools (through young researcher schools), municipalities (e.g. Vilnius, Riga), national government institutions (e.g. Ministry of Culture, Ministry of Education, Science and Sports), NGOs (e.g. Lithuanian Innovation Center, UNESCO, Algojimas) and other groups. The researchers are encouraged to take online courses on Open Science (e.g. FOSTER Open Science). Open structures are promoted through publishing Open Access journals in VGTU Press (e.g. Science – Future of Lithuania), hosting Open Access week and Open research seminars at VGTU Library (e.g. “Open science roundup: tools for collaborative research and early discovery”) and internal Open Access to Research guidelines.
