CEN and CENELEC and LST joined the knowledge valorisation campaign in Lithuania

CEN and CENELEC, together with the Lithuanian Standards Board (LST), participated in ‘Making Research Results Work for Society’ on 6 June in Vilnius, by delivering a training on the implementation of the Code of Practice for Researchers on Standardization in the European Research Area.

The event programme included a presentation of the EU Council’s Recommendation on the Guiding Principles on Knowledge Valorization, as well as presentations and practical training on the two Codes of Practice supporting the uptake of the Council Recommendation focusing on Intellectual Assent Management and on Standardization.


Showcases of knowledge valorization in Lithuania were also presented including, Vilnius Tech, one of the biggest research universities in Lithuania with a focus on technologies and engineering, RTO Lithuania, an association of research and technology organizations and the Lithuanian biotech start-up, Droplet Genomics.


More than 100 participants from research and science organizations joined the event in Vilnius. The event was organized by the Research Council of Lithuania and The Ministry of Education, Science and Sport, as part of the “Tour des Capitales” in the frame of an EU awareness-raising campaign facilitated by the European Commission’s Directorate-General for Research and Innovation.


The next Capital event will take place in Madrid, Spain, focusing on the new Law on Science, technology and Innovation and the new Knowledge Transfer Plan. Further national events are planned in the autumn in Slovenia, Austria, and Portugal.
