The State Scientific Research Institute Nature Research Centre


The State Scientific Research Institute Nature Research Centre (NRC) was established in 2009 under the Resolution of the Government of the Republic of Lithuania. The NRC offers up-to-date scientific research infrastructure for investigations into Earth’s ecosystems, as well as studies and development of environmental protection technologies and sustainable use of natural resources. Upholding 70-year-old traditions and experience, the newly established NRC not only pursues and co-ordinates long-term scientific research in various fields of biotic and abiotic nature and ensures the competence of Lithuania on the international stage, but also takes an active role in the development and implementation of a conceptual framework for the protection of the living environment and its sustainable development, as well as disseminating scientific knowledge of biotic and abiotic environment, thus contributing to the development of the knowledge economy and education of society. In co-operation with representatives of business, government and society, the Nature Research Centre conducts contracted scientific research and experimental development work, rendering recommendations concerning research methodology, etc. Cooperation among representatives of different physical and biomedicine sciences and cooperation-based solutions to scientific tasks are the fundamental principles underlying the activities of the NRC.

To ensure high-level research and a high level of competitiveness, state-of-the-art scientific research facilities and infrastructure are required on the premises of the NRC, including the Open Access Centre. Established for the purpose of providing open access to R&D resources, the Open Access Centre, integrating scientific research laboratories, conducts both fundamental and applied research to meet the needs of business entities.
