The Agency for Science, Innovation and Technology invites researchers, start-ups, companies, students and members of the society who are interested in the life sciences industry and its advancements to take part in an open lecture titled: “LIFE SCIENCES for the society, the entrepreneur and the researcher”. During the lecture, scientists and innovators will introduce the participants to recent achievements in the medical and health fields, their benefits for our society, ongoing and completed projects, and will discuss what we can expect from this field in the near future and how the life sciences industry is going to change. The MITA expert Dr Lina Kisielė will consult with those who are about to start their own businesses or who are interested in creating and developing innovative solutions, and will introduce an initiative that is designed to encourage the development of the life sciences industry and offers a means of financing a project.

The conference will be held in Lithuanian.
