Partnering opportunity

A Lithuanian research group offers its experience in determination of durability of building materials


A Lithuanian research group offers its know-how to obtain findings regarding the durability of building materials, such as roofing sheets, wood-based panels, flexible sheets for waterproofing, sheeting for walls, facades, ceilings and floors and other sheet goods. The research group is interested in services agreements with industry for providing testing such materials in a scope of durability. They also offer to cooperate partners interested in progress of R&D of building material durability.

Partner sought

Type of partner sought: industry, academic sector, research organisations. The research group seeks companies from construction and close to this sectors areas interested in services agreement for finding results regarding to durability of building materials. The research group is open to cooperate with universities, R&D institutions and industry interested in R&D progress of durability of building material under the form of research or technical cooperation agreement.


A Lithuanian research group is part of a contemporary research institute at the University that undertakes R%26D and actively provided applied research services in the field of building engineering. This group focuses on determination of durability of building materials such as bitumen, plastic, rubber, metal roofing sheets and roofing products, wood-based panels, flexible sheets for waterproofing, sheeting for external walls, partitions, facades, ceilings and floors as well as other sheet goods. The group offers its in-depth know-how and expertise to obtain finding regarding to durability of such materials. The services include: • assessment of atmospheric environment subjected to the building material during their exploitation or determine degradation processes induced by external factors, • selection conditions and methods for durability tests, • artificial ageing laboratory testing of building materials, • evaluation of degradation of coatings, • test reporting in accordance with the requirements of the relevant standards. Above mentioned building materials are tested carried out artificial ageing by exposure to the combination of UV light, wide range of temperatures and moisture, this reproduces the damage caused by sunlight, rain and dew. Materials can be affected by the impacts of abrasion or salt spry as well. The main advantage is the availability of extensive scientific expertise, facilities and services in a compact one-stop-shop. Laboratory is equipped with QUV accelerated weathering tester, cyclic corrosion test chamber, low and high temperature chambers, oven, other laboratory equipment. Laboratory is accredited by Lithuanian National Accreditation Bureau on ISO/IEC 17025 and several standards regarding to tests in artificial atmospheres and evaluation of degradation of coatings. The research group is interested in services agreements for providing testing building materials in the scope of durability. They are active in applied research and also offer research cooperation and/ or technical cooperation with R&D institution, academic sector, or industry.

Advantages and innovations

• Know-how to set-up durability of roofing sheets and products, wood-based panels, sheeting for walls, facades, ceilings, floors, other building material. • Availability of capabilities, facilities and services in a one-stop-shop for artificial ageing laboratory testing and evaluation of building material degradation. • Facilitation to the customers to determine the nature of the degradation and to find solutions to for degradation problem solving.

How it works

  • Tell us about yourself
  • We’ll discuss with you
  • We put the right partners in touch

EEN help you find the right partner, rather than you going it alone.

Our role is to review and collate the most suitable submissions, and then send them to the client who posted the opportunity. We consult with you, and the client, to make the process professional and easy.

These are live opportunities. Your registration of interest on the site is just like a professional approach to a business at a networking event. To stand the best chance of success, make your submission really sing. Sell why the client who posted the opportunity should work with you. Excite them. Ask questions. Try and avoid copy and pasting words from elsewhere.

Once the client has chosen their partner, we'll introduce them over email and keep in touch with both parties to see how it's going. Sometimes things progress quickly. Sometimes because of changing priorities for either party, things progress slowly, but you never know - your next big business break could start right here.
