The Info Day to introduce the new support measure IMPRESS-U (International Multilateral Partnerships for Resilient Education and Science System in Ukraine) will be held on Thursday, 5 October at 15:30-17:00 (Estonian time) at Teams, organised by ETAG in cooperation with the US National Science Foundation.
Aim of the IMPRESS-U is to support excellence in science and engineering research, education and innovation through international collaboration and promote the integration of Ukrainian scientists into the international research community. Each proposal must engage researchers from 3 countries: the U.S., Ukraine and at least one other country involved in this initiative (Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania and/or Poland).
Applications can be submitted from all scientific fields, but priority will be given to projects that propose creative ways for enhancing efficiency and resiliency of international partnerships; efficient concepts to prepare research workforce; efficient and significant contributions to build a modern, state-of-the-art research/education/innovation ecosystem in Ukraine.
