Laser and Engineering technologies cluster LITEK™ was established in Vilnius in 2011 to support and increase the cooperation between science and business in the field of lasers and optoelectronics. The clustering of the laser companies in Vilnius goes back more than 20 years in history, when the first spin-offs from the university turned into technology ventures, some of which went on to become the world leaders in supplying high end laser systems for scientific and, more recently, industrial applications. Most of the products are manufactured in Vilnius. The main export markets outside of the EU are the US and China. Since 2015 LITEK operates a training and research center (which was setup with the support from the EU Structural funds) equipped with modern research and prototyping equipment, laboratories, cleanrooms and offices, enabling cluster companies to have more possibilities for development of new products in the synergetic environment. The LITEK cluster network extends to some 50 companies, of which almost half are the early stage ventures.
