On June 12-13, the Vytautas Magnus University organized an impactful entrepreneurial training for academic and non-academic staff. The training "Research project preparation in a different way“, aimed to foster the development of innovative products within the university and attract funding for their advancement and was moderated by Edvinas Samys, the Entrepreneur Project's Lithuanian local coordinator, and his team.
