VIKO Staff Training Week


VIKO Staff Training Week “Demand-Based Research in Higher Education” has successfully finished!

VIKO hosted 45 bright, talented and high-skilled participants from 15 European, Asian and African countries who were highly motivated to gain new skills in demand-based research as well as to get to know to Lithuania, its culture, history and customs.

The intensive Staff Training Week circled around the topics such as:

What are the challenges of demand driven research and how to overcome them?

What competences are needed for a PHE applied researcher working for companies/organisations and how to acquire them?

What is a Science Shop and what is “sold”/ “bought” there?

The Week was full of enriching meetings with VIKO researchers presenting their best research cases, a wide platform for discussions and best practice exchanges, lectures from foreign researchers, visits to VIKO strategic partner companies, a lot of networking as well as excursions around Vilnius, International evening with Lithuanian folk song and dance ensemble Voruta, traditional Midsummer festival celebration and much more.
