Clusters are Invited to Apply for “Maturity” Consultations (the 2nd call)
The Agency for Science, Innovation and Technology (MITA) announces a second call for the submission of an application and invites to apply for the so-called cluster “maturity” consultations. These consultations focus on strengthening clusters that are already active in Lithuania, building their competence in development and growth.
These activities will be implemented in accordance with the EU’s new project “Promotion and Development of Innovation Networking (InoLink)” by “InogebLT” that is coordinated by MITA and is conducted in cooperation with the Lithuanian Innovation Centre. During the project, around 16 promising Lithuanian clusters will be selected, which will work in groups to discuss strategy making, choosing a business model, a marketing plan and other important questions.
The director of the Agency for Science, Innovation and Technology Kęstutis Šetkus says: “MITA has successfully started this activity, and currently 10 clusters are using its maturity services. We have decided to provide opportunities to some more clusters that comply with the smart specialization to use the services provided by the project”.
In order to promote the internationalization of Lithuanian clusters and their access to international markets, the search for international partners in accordance with smart specialization will be organized, partner search services and consultations on adding new international members to clusters will be provided, and many other activities will be arranged.
The duration of maturity sessions for one cluster during the whole time of the implementation of the “InoLink” project is 12 to 36 days, when the maturity session plan, covering subjects that are most important to them, is discussed in advance.
Applications shall be submitted until 28 February 2017 (4:30 pm) by email email@example.com or delivered to this address: A. Goštauto str. 12-219, Vilnius. For more information please contact Jolanta Aviženytė, firstname.lastname@example.org, tel. 8 645 89 138.
