Klaipeda university

Klaipeda University (KU) was founded in 1991 to meet the needs of Lithuania’s development: to solve the problems of regional culture, education, research, industry, technology, and economy, to decentralize higher education, to attract youth to Klaipeda, to promote the humanities in Klaipeda and Western Lithuania, to conduct research in the culture and history of Western Lithuania and the neighbouring Baltic States, to make Klaipeda a regional centre of culture, and to foster the idea of Lithuania as a maritime state. Since 1999, the studies of health sciences have been implemented at Klaipeda University with the aim of using the exceptional natural resources created by the sea and its environment for recreation and health promotion and recovery.

Over its three decades of operation, KU has gained significant scientific recognition in the Baltic Sea Region. In 2008, the Marine Valley project was launched to strengthen the cooperation of research, studies, and business and to develop a modern marine research infrastructure. The Mintis vessel, built in 2014, represents a unique research laboratory at sea. The laboratories of the Marine Research Institute opened in 2018 are among the most advanced ones in the Baltic States. In 2018, for the first time in the field of oceanographic research, Klaipeda University was ranked among the 200 best universities in the world and among the 10 best universities in the Baltic Sea Region in terms of quality publications and numbers of citation (CA WoS) and successfully maintained the position in 2019.
