Lithuanian Universities Obtain Unlimited Classroom Use of ESRI GIS Software

Students Will Benefit from Greater Access to Geospatial Technology

Redlands, California—October 28, 2009—
Lithuania's minister of education and science, Gintaras Steponavièius; ESRI president Jack Dangermond; and Linas Gipiskis, managing director of HNIT-BALTIC, UAB, ESRI's distributor in Lithuania, signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) during the recent ESRI European User Conference. The MOU allows Lithuania's universities and colleges to obtain educational site licenses for ESRI's geographic information system (GIS) software products, providing access to ArcGIS core software and its extensions.

"This agreement opens the door to increased problem solving-based learning for university students across Lithuania, something that helps build valuable job skills," said Steponavièius.

Dangermond added, "Several Lithuanian universities have already demonstrated the value of GIS in their teaching and research activities. This agreement facilitates the uptake of the technology by a wider range of academic departments that are considering how spatial thinking and problem solving can impact their studies."
