Germany | 21.-23. September 2015 Berlin
Ukraine is currently undertaking important reform activities in the education and science sector towards the integration into the European Research Area. The National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine (NASU) as one of the main pillars of the science system is therefore in the process of transforming itself to meet these changes. Experiences of German research institutions could play a consulting role in this process.
A first joint workshop was held in March 2015 in Kyiv to discuss suitable methods and procedures for evaluating the research institutes of NASU. During this workshop fruitful contacts have been established between Ukrainian and German actors dealing with structural decisions to strengthen quality assurance, more competitiveness and internationalisation. Based on the outcome of this workshop, where several specific topics have been identified and prioritized with regard to the individual Ukrainian situation, consequently a second step should be done to lead this activity to concrete measures. Therefore the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) is inviting a delegation of Ukrainian experts to a study visit to German research organisations in September 2015.
