In March 2017, „Informacinė raida“ UAB launched the implementation of a project, research and development activities carried out within the framework of which will result in the development of an innovative educational simulation model of operation and effectiveness assessment of a port and development of competences. The project is funded by Regional Development Fund under the measure of „Intelektas. Bendri mokslo–verslo projektai“ (Programme 2014-2020 European Union Investment in Lithuanina). UAB Informacinė raida acting as the project promoter in cooperation with its partner „Lithuanian Maritime academy“.
The goal of the project is development of an educational simulation model of operation and effectiveness assessment of a port and education of competences based on practical training with the use of simulation environment. By using this model, qualified specialists capable of improvement of the quality of port services can be trained.
