In year 2013 Lithuanian science and education institutions were most active in the areas of “Food and Agriculture”, “Materials, Physics and Nanosciences” and “Forests, their products and services”, while the least representatives participated in “Transport and Urban Development” area (Figure 2). These indicators pertain to the relevance of the Actions to the scientists as well as activity and ability of the institutions themselves to connect with international scientific community.
