The National Agency is a partner of the project “Green Transition in Ukrainian Universities” of the Polish National Agency for Academic Exchanges (NAWA). Under the coordination of the Wroclaw Polytechnic, seven Ukrainian HEIs are implementing the project.
The main goal of the project is to support the academic community of Ukraine by involving partners in regular activities within the project and to establish permanent cooperation between Ukrainian universities and the Wroclaw Polytechnic, which will contribute to the process of post-war reconstruction of the country, and will also be an important step in its integration into the European Union.
The project is based on four main tasks:
- the development of green standards for Ukrainian universities with respect to education and research activities in the field of engineering and technical sciences, as well as the development of a local version of these with the specificities of Ukrainian universities in mind;
- the development of a green campus model and the implementation of standards in the area of research and teaching activities and campus operations;
- a 2-week course on “Green technologies for the development of Ukrainian society”, which will be attended by students from Ukrainian universities and teachers from the universities that belong to the Unite! alliance. The course will focus on topics pertaining to disciplines that will be applicable to the reconstruction and modernisation of Ukraine’s industry and infrastructure;
- creating and implementing a micro-certification system for Ukrainian students in the area related to green transformation.
