The University of Liverpool is running an initiative to strengthen digital research collaboration between the UK and Ukraine. This project, known as “Building Digital Capability for Recovery in Ukraine” is pioneered by our colleague Professor Igor Potapov from the Department of Computer Science. The venture explores various digital themes such as mathematics, algorithms, AI, and data science. The goal is to stimulate research growth, promote Ukrainian scientific organisations, and establish a vibrant research network. Find more about this initiative in the recent article by BCS.
We are glad that our very own Science for Ukraine UK team member Igor Potapov from the University of Liverpool has successfully applied for an EPSRC’s Global Challenges Research Fund (GCRF) for #ScienceForUkraine. This grant will be used to promote research collaboration with Ukraine along the Digital Theme (Mathematics, Computer Science, Computational Engineering).
The objective of this project is to help Ukrainian academics at Universities and Research Institutes to integrate into the international research network and to find new research contacts. The global idea of the initiative is to facilitate collaboration between UK/international and Ukrainian research groups on individual levels as well as on institutional levels as well as to support the UK-Ukraine twinning initiative. On the 24th of January we held the first Programme for Digital Theme Ambassadors Meeting. You will find updated information and how to get involved on this page. We thank everyone for being involved and supporting this cause.
An article in the Time Higher Education highlighting 8 different ways UK academics can help students and researchers from Ukrainian universities. This is a contribution by our very own Anna Bobak, Valentina Mosienko and Igor Potapov.
