ICT2013 has become one of the biggest events so far during Lithuania’s EU Presidency. It brought together Europe’s leading ICT researchers, European ICT policy makers, entrepreneurs, business people, students. Co-hosted by Lithuania and the European Commission and it was opened by Lithuania’s President Dalia Grybauskaitė together with the Vice President of the European Commission, Neelie Kroes.
During the conference many ICT companies exhibited the latest innovations. In the exhibition there was a special pavilion, “The Lithuanian Village”, where the best Lithuanian IT innovations were demonstrated. These included a novel transport surveillance system, an ‘electronic nose” for checking meat and fish products quality, an underwater smart sonar probe to convey fishing information for fishermen, and many others. Some of those innovations might become just as successful as the already well known ground breaking GetJar and Pixelmator.
