Open access centers are up-to-date laboratories located in Vilnius University (VU) that are working on the basis of an open access principle, i.e., modern laboratory equipment and top-level scientific research services are accessible not only for researchers, students or visiting scientists of Vilnius University, but also for researchers and students from other research institutions and Business enterprises.
Open Access Centers (OAC) at Vilnius University:
- Vilnius University Life Sciences Center
- Vilnius University Information Technology Research Center
- Vilnius University Lasers Research Center facility “Naglis”
- Vilnius University Physical Sciences and Technologies Research Center
- Application for Open Access Center services
