Co-create the latest high-tech engineering solutions with Lithuanian companies!
Lithuania’s high-tech engineering industry is fully prepared to deliver innovative world-class solutions to foreign partners.
With production from the sector growing by an average of 17% per year, one of Lithuania’s strongest areas of achievement is in electronics and laser technology. The country is renowned for its electronic, computer and optical products – and laser technology is a key industry for Lithuania, allowing the country to make its mark internationally.
Lithuania has one of the highest proportions of higher education graduates of any EU member state. Its highly diverse talent pool includes 41,500 qualified engineering specialists, over 31,500 IT specialists, and more than 40,000 students in both these specialties combined. Lithuania’s national government is committed to growing STEM education, which is why Lithuania is the No.1 country in the CEE region for university-business collaboration in R&D, and is ranked No.2 in the world by Bloomberg for ‘tertiary efficiency’, a category that includes enrolment in higher education and the number of graduates in key innovation sectors.

A Lithuanian-led partnership has created the world‘s first standardised robot cell for bending sheet metal – an innovation that brings enhanced flexibility to manufacturing, and could be the key to overcoming a key skills shortage in the sheet metal industry in Germany and across Europe.
At a time of global political uncertainty, the defence industry is among the fastest-growing sectors in Europe and around the world. As the sophistication of military and defence technologies has increased, defence spending has moved up government policy agendas, leading to increased investment in R&D.
The multi-year cooperation between Lithuania’s laser sector and German scientific institutions and industry may be entering a new phase. Femtika, one of Lithuania’s fastest-growing laser sector companies, has announced plans to open its first international division in Germany. Ekspla, one Lithuania’s largest laser solutions companies, also looks to strengthen its presence in the German market.
The Baltic Miltech Summit 2021, held on 6-7 October in Vilnius, Lithuania, is set to showcase Lithuania’s cutting-edge defence and technology sectors – providing partners from across Germany’s defence sector with an opportunity to widen their reach and connect with innovators in the region. The largest conference of its kind in the Baltic States, Baltic Miltech brings together NATO and EU policymakers, businesses and researchers from the public and private sectors, to foster new and existing synergies and showcase the latest cutting-edge military technologies.
