Science and Business Valleys 

Lithuania is developing five integrated science, research and business centres (valleys) located in the country’s three largest cities: the capital city Vilnius, the second largest city and industrial capital Kaunas, and the seaport in Klaipėda. Each valley will specialize in a number of scientific research fields, including laser and light technologies, nanotechnologies, semiconductor physics and electronics, civil engineering, biotechnology, innovative medical technologies, molecular medicine and biopharmacy, ecosystems and sustainable development, informatics and communication technologies, mechatronics and related electronic technologies, future energy, forestry, food technology, marine environment and technologies.
