Almost all economic development centers operating in Kaunas region are concentrated in Kaunas city. These include the KTU Regional Science Park, the Santaka Valley (the Science, Studies and Business Center), the Nemunas Valley (the development of animal health, nutrition and animal raw materials science and study infrastructure, the consolidation of scientific potential) and such business centers as Arka, River Hall and many others. ICT technologies and business are successfully developed in the Science and Technology Park (R&D) Technopolis, which is a partner of Kaunas Santaka Valley.
Although the development of Kaunas region is relatively fast, the lack of administrative capacities in municipalities, as well as in companies or farmers’ property’s hinders the use of the possibilities of EU support. Another problem is the lack of territorial planning documents.
