IT Research center

About center

E mokslo vartaiWe are a team of professionals, able to offer innovative information technology solutions to your business. We can also offer supercomputer resources, that do not have analogues in Lithuania, various specialized software, large amount data management, analysis, modelling and simulation services, as well as expertise services. Our passion is looking for solutions, therefore, if you have an idea, we will be pleased to implement it!

We aim to:

We can offer scientific research and experimental development in:

Advantages for you:

Supercomputer is a very powerful computer, which can process large amounts of information and perform calculations for modelling complex processes such as nuclear reactions and biochemical processes or even customers' habits. Using these resources scientists and business representatives can shorten calculation time many times and get more accurate results.

IT Research center was established based on Senate Resolution No. S-2010-06-30 and EU structural support project VP2-1.1-MES-04-V-01-002 "Information technology research center establishment". IT Research center operates as a research laboratory and it is focused on education, research and business.

TAMO diary (www.tamo.lt)

Have you heard about electronic diaries at schools? Or maybe you follow your children’s progress on them? By co-operating with NEVDA Ltd., we have developed and successfully tested the configuration environment of the distributed database management system. Therefore, the electronic diary system TAMO in Lithuania is characterized as highly stabile and effective.  

"Working with Vilnius University Information Technology Research Center team is easy – informal agreements complement written commitments that are common in business. This kind of mature communication allows to achieve the results extremely quickly without wasting time for additional bureaucracy.

I would like to note that ITRC staff is highly professional and they consider their work as a hobby. This philosophy results in creation of unique Cloud service and big data solutions (used in TAMO project), that are not being offered by other service providers."

Paulius Jonikas, NEVDA Ltd. Project Director
