KIEV, January 16. /ITAR-TASS/. The European Union Horizon 2020 has been presented at the State Agency for Science, Innovation and Informatization, the agency’s press service reported on Thursday.
“The Horizon 2020 is aimed at backing research and innovation activities in all spheres of public life - from fundamental sciences to developing innovation in the real sector of economy. It is significant that the program has been firstly presented in Kiev. This proves the EU high interest in scientific and technical cooperation with Ukraine,” the agency’s head, Vladimir Seminozhenko, said.
Europe realizes the powerful innovation and intellectual potential of Ukraine, the official said.
“A decision to give the associated status to CERN (European Organisation for Nuclear Research) for Ukraine has a weighty result. Ukrainian scientists, professors and students are successfully cooperating with foreign colleagues under EUREKA,” Seminozhenko said.
“Ukraine’s scientific and technological integration will be strengthened. We can say Ukraine is the EU equal partner in science and technology,” the official said.
However, Ukraine seeks to step up scientific and technological cooperation with the CIS countries that are traditional partners, he said, adding that recently Ukraine had signed the CIS innovation cooperation program 2020. A Ukrainian representative has been appointed head of the CIS Council for Cooperation in Science, Technology and Innovation. “This proves that the scientific space where new ideas and decisions are come up has no borders,” he concluded.
