"The technical project is completed, and all documents necessary for the construction permit to get have been uploaded into the system, and we are now awaiting a decision. We believe it's realistic to receive the permit by the end of the year," Tadas Metelionis, deputy director of administration at Kaunas Municipality, told BNS.

"The construction department has already started preparing for the procurement of construction work and we plan it in the first quarter of 2020," he added.

SMAR Architecture Studio with its projects "Sun Never Sets for Science" was picked as the winner of the 2017 architectural contest to present an idea for a science promotion center.

The local authorities estimated earlier the project would cost around 25 million euros, with 5 million euros expected from the government, 10 million euros in EU funds from the Ministry of Education, Science and Sports, and another 2.5 million euros from the EU funds distributed by the Interior Ministry. The local municipality and partners would allocate the remaining 5.5 million euros.

Visitors of the interactive science and technology center will be able to get acquainted with humanity achievements and science and technological innovations.
