Supporting Entrepreneurship and Innovation in Higher Education in Lithuania

(This is a joint project of the OECD and the European Commission)

Higher education institutions (HEIs) and research institutions (RIs) in Lithuania have significantly increased their engagement with the innovation and entrepreneurship agenda in the past decade. Lithuania is considered to be a Moderate Innovator and there are signs that innovation is becoming a growing part of the Lithuanian economy. Students, staff and academics are personally committed to making sure their institutions become relevant contributors to the economy and society. In one compelling example, digital teaching for the wider community was introduced as a result of the COVID-19 crisis, with many examples of individual initiatives by Lithuanian institutions supporting the digital response of their communities to the pandemic. It is clear that Lithuania is on a journey towards an entrepreneurial mind-set, and the analysis and recommendations in this report consider how it can best leverage its own unique strengths and capacities.
