The centre was established on the initiative of LINPRA, the Engineering Industries Association of Lithuania, in an effort to strengthen the accessibility and efficient use of innovation support in areas critical for the assurance of competitiveness of companies in the engineering industry - namely, in the creation of new high value-added products and the effective production and sale thereof. Functioning on a network base, the VIPKC:

  • Brings together the competencies of R&D&I service providers operating in Lithuania and other EU countries, and systematizes them in a way that is understandable to producers and researchers.
  • Acts as an intermediary between engineering industry companies/service recipients and R&D&I service providers.
  • Is involved in the location of domestic and foreign partners required by companies that operate within the engineering industry.
  • Offers certain services provided by its network members, such as the design of new products, technological training, consultation on international trade agreements, financial support opportunities, etc.

The database of the Virtual Engineering Industry Competition Centre (VIPKC) will enable manufacturers and researchers to have access to systemised information about research and experimental development and innovation (R&D&I) services and their suppliers based in Lithuania and abroad, mainly in the Baltic Sea region countries. Initially, the database will contain information about 100 Lithuanian R&D&I suppliers and services provided by them.
