We foresee the establishment of different types of working groups – devoted to a particular field of science and/or technology as well as to topics of general interest, such as research funding, career development, science outreach, etc. In addition, regional groups are also being formed. If you are keen to start a working group devoted to a specific scientific or strategic topic, or to initiate Network activities – do get in touch! At the moment the following Working groups are active:

  • FUNDING: This working group aims to monitor and share the information on relevant funding opportunities, offer the expertise on grant writing and review process, organise thematic workshops, as well as support applications for funding to support the Society and the Network and individual projects. Contact: Oksana Seumenicht and Nataliya Butych (info (at) ukrainet.eu)
  • MATHEMATICS: Currently a dedicated distribution list to share news is being established by Victoria Grushkovskaya (vi.grushkovskaya (at) gmail.com). There is also an independent “Ukrainian Mathematical Community”, please check their web-site here.
