Grybauskaite praises Shiller’s work

VILNIUS - On Dec. 14, President Dalia Grybauskaite met with Professor Robert Shiller, an economist of Lithuanian descent who was awarded with the 2013 Nobel Prize in Economics, reports ELTA.
“I sincerely congratulate you upon receiving this most honorable award. I am pleased that your work, and the work of other Lithuanian scientists, is highly valued globally and achieved international acknowledgment. Gifted, talented and creative people, whose knowledge and enthusiasm stimulate global progress, are the greatest treasure of the country and of humanity,” said Grybauskaite.

In 2013 another scientist who has Lithuanian roots, Michael Levitt, was awarded the Nobel Prize in Chemistry. There are a total of 10 Nobel Prize laureates with direct ties to Lithuania.
The president noted that Professor Shiller’s work and scientific achievements are an inspiration to Lithuanian youth to study, strive for knowledge and create Lithuanian future by persistent work and energy.

According to Grybauskaite, in twenty-three years of independence Lithuania has become known for its innovations, advanced technology and scientific development. In the areas of technology and lasers it is one of the leaders in the world. Talented Lithuanian youth are known for innovation, widely applied software and mobile applications. On Dec. 19 NASA will launch two Lithuanian satellites carrying the president’s greetings to all Lithuanians - LitSat-1 and LituanicaSat-1 - developed by the young scientists at Kaunas University of Technology and Vilnius University.
Nobel Prize laureate Shiller was accompanied by his family, brother and Lithuanian relatives.
