Laser & Engineering Technologies cluster LITEK started a dozen years ago, when the laser system manufacturers in collaboration with the scientific institutions began to create unique products. Today LITEK - the structure that connects twelve companies and organizations operating in the laser and associated engineering technologies carrying out joint projects. Currently, members of LITEK are JSC Arginta, JSC Arginta Engineering, JSC Eksma, Elas, Ltd, JSC Ekspla, Public entity Science and Technology Park of Institute of Physics (Cluster Coordinator), Center for Physical Sciences and Technology, Public entity Intechcentras, JSC Optida, JSC Optolita, JSC Optonas, JSC Progressive Business Solutions. General annual turnover of LITEK companies are over 34,75 million Eur and they have more than 490 employees.
Mission of the cluster – active, dynamic and productive cooperation between companies, research establishments and universities, other national and international clusters, integrated science, education and business centers (valleys), and technology platforms in the field of research and innovations. Cooperation, promoting innovation of laser and engineering technology, transfer of the most recent knowledge about science and technology from academic level to business, productivity of the sector and improvement of competitiveness.
Overall goal of the cluster– to create the dynamic center of action, which would have a fully integrated chain of researchers, suppliers, manufacturers and retailers and, which would improve the international competitiveness of laser and laser-related engineering technologies as well as the knowledge and wealth of individual members.
