KTU Santaka Valley is a scientific research and development centre open for Lithuanian and foreign research and educational institutions, and business representatives.
This centre is an essential link connecting innovative technologies and knowledge-intensive companies, embodying a synergy of scientific research, studies and practical implementation of ideas. The Valley consists of two interconnected parts – Science and Technology Centre and Technology Business Incubator. The idea of cooperation is encoded in the building’s architecture created by the project of the architects team: Gražina Janulytė-Bernotienė, Rimantė Lydytė, Erikas Klinavičius.
“The two blocks of the building – black and white – reflect Yin and Yang concept, when seemingly different or even contradictory forces act together and complement one another”, says Ms Janulytė-Bernotienė.
KTU Santaka Valley is one of the largest research and business centres in Lithuania. Science and Technology Centre and Technology Business Incubator employ around 350 staff; the value of the installed equipment reaches almost 26 million EUR. Scientific research space occupies the area of 9 thousand square meters; 3.5 thousand square meters are allocated to business. Total value of the project is more than 43 million EUR.
