Strategic roadmap of the industry digitisation initiative in Lithuania

for the Ministry of Economy and Innovation

The Commission supported the national authorities in their efforts to develop a strategic roadmap for digitisation of industry in Lithuania in close collaboration with the national multi-stakeholder platform for championing industry digitisation reforms.

Context

A favourable environment for cooperation among industry, business, academia and public authorities is needed to encourage the digitisation of industry. Digitisation will enable national industries to remain competitive on the international stage and to contribute to more rapid growth in Lithuania's economy.

Support to be delivered

The Commission provided support over a 9-month period in the form of technical advisory services by entities with substantial experience in industry platforms for digitisation.

The support measures consisted of:

  • benchmarking against best practices in other EU Member States and identifying challenges and opportunities;
  • formulating recommendations; and
  • developing a strategic roadmap for the digitisation of industry in Lithuania.

Results achieved

The Ministry formally adopted the Lithuanian Industry Digitisation Roadmap for 2019-2030 in March 2019. Implementation of, the roadmap is expected to have a major positive impact on the competitiveness and productivity of industry.

The support from the Commission helped the Ministry of Economy secure funding from the EU's structural and investment funds to implement the strategic roadmap. Additional funding has been mobilised from the private sector.
