Partner Country

Lithuania

We are delighted to have Lithuania as a partner country for the 19th National Conference on Health Economy. The country has an advanced ecosystem for life sciences and biotechnology. 

Lithuania is a shining example of innovation and progress in the field of life sciences. The government has been committed for over a decade. This commitment has catapulted the Lithuanian life sciences sector to unprecedented heights, outpacing its European competitors in growth and development. With an ambitious vision, the sector is poised to make a significant contribution and increase Lithuania's GDP by a remarkable 5% by 2030.

Crucial to Lithuania's success story is the remarkable synergy between the key players within the ecosystem - government agencies, businesses, academic institutions and research organisations. This collaboration has been instrumental in driving ground-breaking initiatives and creating an innovation-friendly environment.

The impressive development of the Lithuanian life sciences sector is underlined by its growth rate, which has averaged 30% per year over the last five years. In 2022 alone, the sector generated an impressive turnover of around 1.5 billion euros, consolidating its position as a major player on the world stage. Lithuania's life sciences capabilities extend far beyond the country's borders: an impressive 90% of production is destined for export to over 100 countries worldwide, including key markets such as the US, Germany and the Netherlands. Notable areas of expertise include cutting-edge fields such as cell and gene therapy, protein research, medical technology innovations and advanced drug delivery systems. 

In addition to its strength in the traditional areas of healthcare, Lithuania is also at the forefront of digital innovation, particularly in the area of eHealth. Since 2005, Lithuania has pioneered the introduction of a comprehensive digital medical record system that is accessible to all residents of the country. This forward-thinking approach underlines Lithuania's commitment to harnessing the power of technology to revolutionise healthcare and improve patient outcomes.

Furthermore, Lithuania's rich heritage of rehabilitation and spa centres is a testament to its holistic approach to the health economy. Lithuanian traditions harness the therapeutic possibilities of nature and advocate the preventative benefits of drinking spring water and immersing oneself in the natural environment.
