Proposal

The group provides services within their topics, thus we can create an effective and comprehensive national and regional sustainable development assessment methodology and perform sustainability assessment of economic-social development in Lithuania and its regions. The group aim at assessing interfaces between the economic and social disparities in population and sustainable regional development. We can determine the impact of demographic aging on sustainable development as well as examine the relationships between the institutional equity and sustainable development policy effectiveness. Additionally, we prepare recommendations for the reduction of economic and social disparities among population in the context of sustainable regional development. We evaluate how to encourage businesses to implement more harmonized innovations in order to reach circular economy goals. Now we actively involved in the process of searching partners for HORIZON 2020.
