Funding Govtech solutions

About the program

Agency for Science, Innovation and Technology (MITA) has seen extensive and increasing interest coming from public authorities in innovative solutions and co-creation with startups. However, funding for this type of experimentation has not been available in Lithuania until now. The strong interest from both public authorities and entrepreneurs has led to the emergence of the new MITA programme – from now on, public authorities can receive funding for piloting GovTech solutions. This will allow public authorities to run funded GovTech pilots through an inclusive process called design contest and open up its challenges to startups and other businesses.  The new programme is expected to help mature public sector commitments to foster innovation from only verbal to also financial contribution.
