Ukraine should grow with Horizon 2020, review says

Ukraine should seek more financial support from the EU and reform its institutions to boost science and innovation, a Horizon 2020 policy review has said.

“There is the will” to rebuild Ukrainian science, Hans Chang, head of the peer review and a former director-general of the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences, concluded. The review was conducted via the Horizon 2020 Policy Support Facility between May and December 2016, and its findings were presented on 8 August.

The legislation created a National Board on the Development of Science and Technology and a National Research Foundation.
