Prof. Kiškis: Intl Activities, Research Fellowships Best Way to Learn


Dec. 10th, 2014, Mykolas Romeris University (MRU) Digital Technologies Institute Prof. and attorney Mindaugas Kiškis, told the daily "Lietuvos Žinios," that research fellowships and various international research activities are the best way for him to learn.

"You can talk, meet with specialists from other countries, attend lectures of some of the best in the world, hear the latest insights," he said.

In a page-long interview, Prof. Kiškis discussed his research activities, fellowships abroad including in Canada, Australia, the U.S. and how it's possible to meet Lithuanian emigres abroad no matter where you go.

Last year Prof. Kiškis spent a semester teaching in East China University of Science and Technology (ECUST) in Shanghai where he taught a course on European Patents.

He said he was offered the opportunity to stay abroad and teach at a university in British Columbia, but his duties to family came first.

"If I had agreed it would have meant that I would have had to move to Canada to live and work alone or my wife would have had to forego professional ambitions and career.

"There were a lot of temptations," the 39-year-old professor said.

"I think in terms of research in Lithuania you can do all and sometimes even better. In Europe there is lots of cooperation on the international level. There are lots of opportunities," he said.
