Integration of Lithuanian industry into European value chains

On August 29th the Chair of SCCL Lina Šiumetė and SCCL office representative Justina Donielaitė participated in a workshop on the Lithuanian industrial landscape and its potential to integrate into the European value chains, organized by PPMI. The speakers emphasized the importance of a two-way innovation model, which not only focuses on Research & Development, but also on the technology upgrading in terms of product, function and managerial capabilities in line with the European strategic value chains. Comparing to the peer countries in the EU, Lithuania classifies as a moderate innovator. The lack of a highly skilled workforce in Lithuania is one of the challenges for implementing the innovation policy and increasing the export of high-technology products and knowledge-intensive services.
