International Research Projects

Erasmus+ KA201 – Strategic Partnerships for school education. All in – International Inclusive Society in Arts (ALIISA). Project coordinator: Savonia University of Applied Science (Finland). Project partners: Vilnius University Šiauliai Academy (Lithuania), University of Music and Performing Arts Vienna (Austria), Kuopio Conservatory (Finland), Association „Ich bin OK“(Austria). Project coordinator at Šiauliai Academy: Prof. Dr. D. Strakšienė. 2020–2023.

The aim of the ALIISA project is to meet the development needs of general education with an international continuing education model. ALIISA is an innovation and development project for inclusive art pedagogy in international cooperation: improvement the social significance of art and its role in promoting social inclusion and well-being; developing pedagogical attitudes and skills; improvement the quality of art pedagogical teaching and ensure the availability of qualified professionals on the field of general and art education.

Erasmus+ KA201 – Strategic Partnerships for school education. European Network in Nutritional Education for Aquired Disabilities (ENNEADI). Project coordinator: Futura SOC CONS RL (Italy). Project partners: Vilnius University Šiauliai Academy (Lithuania), University of Bologna (Italy), Nueva Opcion Acquired Brain Injury Association of Valencia (Spain). Project coordinator at Šiauliai Academy: Prof. Dr L. Radzevičienė. 2020–2023.
The ENNEADI project is mainly addressed to professionals who, with different roles, work and assist people with acquired disabilities, with particular reference to neurological disabilities resulting from a traumatic event (e.g. after a brain or spinal cord injury). Expected results are a definition of innovative educational methodologies developed in collaboration with experienced partners and validated through a peer review by the project's network, in particular on the field of good quality-of-life and nutrition practices and services for the people with acquired disabilities.

Erasmus+ Strategic Partnership project Innovative Teacher Education through Personalised Learning (INTERPEARL). Project coordinator: Vilnius University Šiauliai Academy (Lithuania).

RESEARCH PROJECTS CARRIED OUT IN 2021

National Research Projects

Research Council of Lithuania. Research on the Heterogeneous Growth Effects of Public Debt (PUBDEB) (No. S-MIP-19-65). Head of the project: Prof. D. Cibulskienė. Project researchers: Prof. Dr M. Butkus, Assoc. Prof. Dr L. Garšvienė, Assoc. Prof. Dr J. Šeputienė. 2019–2022.

The aim of the project is to provide the theoretical background on the potential factors that determine the heterogeneity of the impact of public debt on growth, and after carrying out the empirical research on their interactions with public debt, to identify conditions when public debt fosters (hinders) economic growth. The practical value of this project is related to the aim to identify the indicators provided on the annual basis, which might be used to foresee the value of fiscal multiplier, and, in turn, the nature of the impact of debt on economic growth (fostering, hindering).

Research Council of Lithuania. A Novel Real-Time Airborne Pollen Recognition and Modelling System for Allergenic Pollen Fforecast (REALTIME). (No. 09.3.3-LMT-K-712-1-0066). Head of the project: Prof. Dr Mikhail Sofiev. Project researchers: Prof. Dr I. Šaulienė, Prof. Dr G. Daunys, Assoc. Prof. Dr L. Šukienė, Assoc. Prof. Dr G. Valiulis, L. Vaitkevičius. 2017–2021.

REALTIME will be implemented by two activities supplementing each other: (i) creation of algorithms for real-time allergenic pollen recognition; (ii) innovative use of algorithms for real-time allergenic pollen recognition for territorial pollen forecasting and hindcasting modelling. Real-time pollen monitoring would benefit allergic people, facilitate physicians’ work and open up new possibilities for monitoring of air quality. Application of such data in air quality modelling systems would be an innovative step in personalised medicine.

Research Council of Lithuania. Evaluation of Synergistic Effect of Allergenic Pollen and Air Quality on Human Health (LORI). (No. S-MIP-19-53). Head of the project: Prof. Dr I. Šaulienė. Project researcher: Assoc. Prof. Dr L. Šukienė. 2019–2022.

The project is based on the idea of clean air and focuses on the goals to find answers whether persons sensitised to pollen are experience exacerbation of symptoms not only due to the persistent effects of allergens, but also because of synergy with air pollution, high air temperature, thunderstorm or complex of air temperature and relative humidity during the vegetation season in Lithuania. We will use multi-annual allergenic airborne pollen, Lithuanian allergic newborns/Alergemol/EuroPrevall cohort, Copernicus open-source air quality and meteorological data, Pollen Diary accessible via PASYFO mobile app.

International Research Projects

EUMETNET. Automatic Pollen Detection Network (AutoPollen). Head of the Project: Dr Bernard Clot (MeteoSwiss). 2018–2022. Project coordinator at Vilnius University Šiauliai Academy: Prof. Dr I. Šaulienė, Assoc. Prof. Dr L. Šukienė. Project partners: ARSO, Slovenia – CHMI, Czech Republic – DHMZ, Croatia – DWD, Germany – FMI, Finland – HNMS, Greece – IMGW-PIB, Poland – Met Eireann, Ireland – MeteoLux, Luxemburg – MeteoSwiss, Switzerland – ZAMG, Austria – AERONET, Turkey – ATMO, France – Bavarian State Office for Health and Food Safety, Germany – Biosense Institute Research, Serbia – European Aerobiology Society – European Federation of Allergy and Airways Diseases Patients’ Association (EFA) –National Pirogov Memorial Medical University, Ukraine – Red Española de Aerobiología (REA), Spain – RNSA, France – Sciensano, Belgium – Siauliai University, Lithuania – Swedish Natural History Museum, Sweden– University of Évora, Portugal – University of Latvia, Latvia – University of Worcester, UK.
The AutoPollen programme seeks to take full advantage of the large potential for progress that automatic pollen observations provide. It brings together a consortium from across Europe with the multidisciplinary expertise needed to address the challenges along the entire information chain – from the actual observation through to the final end-user defined product. The programme is particularly innovative in its cooperation and standardisation from-the-start approach. It also favours convergence with the aerosol and air quality monitoring communities, which should lead to improved service provision and additional savings.
