The Head of the Fund became a speaker at the panel “Challenges and opportunities for implementation and scaling of developments of young scientists in Ukraine”.
During his speech, Pavlo Kostyuk presented the competition of scientific and student project concepts “Revival and Innovative Development of Ukraine”.
It should be reminded that the URF holds this competition jointly with the Council of Young Scientists. The call for applications started on October 16.
“The Ukrainian Reconstruction Fund is an alliance of funds from the United States, Germany, Luxembourg and Switzerland. Our goal is to rebuild a European Ukraine that would be able to stand on its own two feet and not be afraid of its enemies. We are open to any initiatives that will help achieve this goal. In particular, we are ready to support the scientific community”, – said Pavlo Kostyuk.
He said that the idea to hold a competition among young scientists was inspired by the story of a Ukrainian young man who developed a drone for demining.
“I am sure there are many such talents in Ukraine. We will support them. Not only with a monetary reward after the victory. We offer assistance in finding connections abroad. We offer publication of projects, promotion of developments in the US Patent Office. In addition, we will provide support in finding grants through the United States government”, – said the head of the Fund.
