Representatives of over 60 different regions and members of international organizations will share their knowledge and insight during the meeting.

It is very pleasing that we represent ourselves as a city of science and innovation, and such visibility is great importance in the world,” Mr. Dainius Pavalkis, Advisor to the Mayor of Kaunas city on education and health issues, stated.
