Atnaujinta: 2016-02-09 (Tuesday)
- The National Science and Innovation Centre “Science Island” will be established in the very city centre, on the Nemunas Island.
- “Science Island” is the first science popularization centre where science achievements and technology novelties will be presented in an interactive and attractive way. Expositions will be adapted to visitors of various age; they will be understandable for children and interesting to adults.
- The National Science and Innovation Centre will house research laboratories adapted for pupils, a planetarium, and conference centre. Education programmes and events will take part in this centre intended to familiarize the youth with different sciences and possibly encourage choosing a career of a researcher in the future.
- Construction and installation of the centre is scheduled up to the beginning of 2018. Planned investments from EU structural funds and other sources are 23 million euros.
