We welcome our 28th participant that will help the Federation to consolidate and expand the service offering to the members and the research communities. 

By joining the Federation, Vilnius University will benefit from a broader and diversified user base, establish stronger liaisons and collaboration with the national scientific communities, and work to scale up scientific output.
