About Institute

The Applied Research Institute for Prospective Technologies (Protech) is a private non-profit research institute established under FP5 Centres of Excellence project for Candidate Countries "First Step" as industrial research centre with specific knowledge in photovoltaic technologies. From the very beginning institute is focusing its activities on industry relevant research supporting SMEs and manufacturing industries in Lithuania and EU countries. Successful implementation of research projects with strong industry involvement triggered interest of private investors to work with Protech as a performer of industry level reasearch and technology developer.

Today, ProTech is recognised applied research centre focusing it‘s activities at green energy generation and application technologies, particularly, photovoltaics, energy efficient buildings and environment-friendly materials. ProTech adminstrates a national Photovoltaic Technology Cluster and runs it‘s open-access R&D facilities. ProTech is also an administrator of Plastics and new materials cluster.
