Vilnius University is the largest university in Lithuania involved in multidisciplinary academic activity. A broad spectrum of fundamental and applied research in different areas of science, highly acclaimed research work, and close cooperation with research centres throughout the world have deservedly earned VU the status of a leader in science and research. Advanced level research is pursued at VU in such academic fields as the humanities (history, literature, languages); Lithuanian studies; structure and development of society; biological and sociopsychological cognition and human development; health care, prevention, diagnosis and treatment of diseases; genomics, biomolecules and biotechnologies; changes and protection of ecosystems and natural resources; new functional materials and derivatives; theoretical and condensed matter physics; laser physics and light technologies; fundamental and applied mathematics; and informatics and information technologies, etc. VU represents Lithuania by shaping high scientific standards, which increasingly contribute to attracting international researchers, and becomes a serious competitor to prestigious European universities.
