Dear participants and organizers,

It is a real pleasure to welcome the European Union Science Olympiad to Lithuania.

This Olympiad is an early start for our joint efforts to make Europe the leading region in Global economy.

Science is a vehicle to our prosperous future. Therefore, I am happy to see the youngest generation of Europeans who take deep interest in science and seek solutions to meet challenges. Aim high, and we will succeed and benefit as a region.

Enjoy your time in Lithuania. I hope you will get to know our country which is currently on the path of building high-tech economy future based on science, study and business cooperation.
