UNIVERSEH Extended for Ukraine

Project implementation period: from January 2, 2023 to December 31, 2023

The aim of the UNIVERSEH Extended for Ukraine project is to include Ukrainian partner universities in the activities of the UNIVERSEH European University alliance and to strengthen existing cooperation in the New Space area, with particular emphasis on improving the competences, mobility and multilingualism of students. The Space Technology Center (CTK) of AGH, will be responsible for the implementation of the tasks.

The proposed activities are part of the mission of the UNIVERSEH partnership of European Universities: creating a common European university offering access to the latest knowledge in the field of space technologies. Students of the UNIVERSEH alliance will be invited to participate in the project in collaboration with two Ukrainian Universities: Ivano-Frankivsk National Technical University of Oil and Gas and Precarpathian National University of Vasyl Stefanyk in Ivano-Frankivsk.

Learning about space technology can also help in the development of innovative solutions in fields such as medicine, energy or telecommunications, which contributes to the progress and technological development of the whole world.

The scope of financial support for project activities related to the forms organized under the above-mentioned alliance includes:

  • organizing the exchange of students, doctoral students and employees of the institution
  • participation in study visits, internships, summer/winter schools, seminars, workshops, training courses or intensive courses
  • active participation in conferences
  • development of modern teaching materials
  • development or preparation of new and innovative teaching tools and methods
  • development of a quality management system to improve the quality of education and research
  • conducting joint research and development works
  • preparation of joint scientific publications
  • networking and establishing cooperation between Ukrainian universities and members of alliances

Goals of the project:

  • carrying out project’s research in the area of ​​technology cosmic
  • coordination of related research conducted at AGH with space technologies
  • promoting project’s inventions and ideas
