The establishment of Kaunas Aleksotas Innovation Industrial Park (KAIIP) aims to significantly stimulate economic and innovation development in the Kaunas region by attracting investment capital and talent from both Lithuania and abroad. It will be a hub for innovative companies to thrive, expand, collaborate with research institutions, and create added value for the entire country. The park will be conveniently situated close to the city centre on the left bank of the Nemunas River in the heart of Aleksotas, between Europos Avenue and Lakūnų Road, on the site of the former Kaunas Aviation Factory. The location, which spans approximately 30 hectares, provides quick access to universities and other key locations in the Kaunas innovation ecosystem.

The newly established Kaunas Aleksotas Innovation Industrial Park aims to bring together research and development, as well as innovation companies, which will create high added value and form the high-tech core of Kaunas. It is expected that investors, both from Lithuania and abroad, who choose to operate within KAIIP will create at least 1,100 well-paid jobs and employ over 142 researchers. As an economically significant facility for the country, the development of KAIIP will commence with the opening of the reconstructed hangar. This space will accommodate innovative companies specializing in life sciences, industrial machinery, equipment and tools, and information and communication technology (ICT). The park’s areas of specialization are designed to meet the needs of investors of different sizes and industries.

The reconstructed hangar, spanning an area of 10,000 m2, presents companies with an exciting opportunity to redesign their production space to cater to their individual needs. The first floor of the hangar will cater to companies specializing in engineering manufacturing, while the second floor will be used for life science laboratories and administrative premises for companies operating across all KAIIP specializations.

The special technology of raised flooring on the second floor will allow maximum flexibility in planning and fitting out the space to suit the tenants’ needs, while also ensuring the floor remains airtight and reliable. This feature enables tenants to customize the space and adapt it to their specific requirements with ease.

Insights from Key Players

Visvaldas Matijošaitis Mayor of Kaunas City
Kaunas has been and remains an academic city. We have almost every possible study programme in our institutions of higher education. Many young people study, live and work here. After graduation, highly qualified professionals will find well-paid jobs and even more reasons to build their futures here. While Kaunas was considered an industrial city, it has been dominated by technology and health sciences for some time now. The new Innovation Industrial Park in Aleksotas will reinforce this progress, boosting the economic development of the whole region and attracting investment capital and talent from all over Lithuania and abroad.
Prof. Rimantas Benetis Rector of Lithuanian University of Health Sciences
We are pleased to see the Aleksotas Innovation Park as another opportunity to accelerate the development of the life sciences sector in Kaunas. Lithuanian University of Health Sciences (LSMU) brings together a strong community of practitioners, scientists, researchers and life science start-ups. Health innovations are our strength. We welcome this new ambitious Innovation Park, and I hope that together we will be able to play an active role in creating a creative, continuously learning, healthy and safe Kaunas city, region, and the whole country.
Paulius Nezabitauskas Director of Tech-Park Kaunas
Kaunas is a recognised academic city. It is home to many young talented and enterprising people studying, living and creating technologies and businesses. The concept of the Aleksotas Innovation Park and the existing infrastructure is an opportunity for the city to make a strong breakthrough by bringing together the city’s strongest assets: university researchers, progressive and ambitious companies, start-ups, foreign corporations, venture capital enterprises.
Prof. Eugenijus Valatka Rector of Kaunas University of Technology
It is great to witness and contribute to the growth of Kaunas, not only in terms of infrastructure, but also in business, science and culture. Aleksotas Innovation Park is an important step towards creating high added-value jobs, fostering cooperation between science and business, bringing together the developer and start-up communities, and ultimately attracting investment to Lithuania. I am confident that KTU’s contribution to the creation and development of this innovation park will be significant for both present and future generations.
