White paper

At the first German-Ukrainian Summer Workshop „Perspectives for young scientists in life sciences: Mastering global challenges of the modern society” 25 enthusiastic PhD students and young scientists from all over Ukraine as well as from Germany had a unique opportunity to discuss current challenges faced by the Ukrainian education and science system. As a result, a White paper on the issues related to the implementation of Ukraine’s laws “On Higher Education” and “On Science and Scientific and Technology Activities”, containing a series of recommendations, was elaborated. It was communicated to the Ministry of Science and Education and other stakeholders.

The workshop was organized by the Department of Biochemistry & Biotechnology, V. Stefanyk Prykarpatian National University, Tübingen University and the German-Ukrainian Academic Society/ The UKRAINE Network, and was supported by the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) from the funds of the German Federal Ministry for Foreign Affairs.
