Duration of the project: 36 months

The EU has set itself the goal of being a world leader in solving climate and environmental problems. Ukraine seeks to follow this ambitious path together with the EU, which needs to consolidate EU initiatives in the fight against cross-border instability. Ukrainian educational programs lack knowledge of European initiatives, as well as insufficient experience in implementing European practices of transforming the business environment. In Ukrainian educational programs, there is a lack of knowledge about the EUGreenDeal, and there is also insufficient application of the experience of applying the principles of the circular economy in the Ukrainian business environment. In response to this, KNEU profesors and young researchers developed this project.

The main goal of the project:

The project is designed to ensure the dissemination of advanced knowledge regarding the EU's global competitive leadership strategy and the creation of a climate-neutral economy.

Tasks of the project:

  • Creation of an open University open network for research and internships for the purpose of sustainable development, cooperation of students and teachers, researchers, employers, all other interested parties in the promotion of EUGreenDeal in Ukraine
  • Development and approval of a new university internship program as an action plan for the transformation of the employment model in the face of global challenges
  • Development and implementation of a new open distance course on the study of the European model of green development and the possibility of its adaptation in Ukraine
  • Study of the progress and prospects of a climate-neutral economy both in the EU and in Ukraine
  • Holding of round tables on the green course of Ukraine's economic movement towards a sustainable Europe for Ukrainians, politicians and government officials, representatives of small and medium-sized businesses, civil society
  • Promotion of EU values and approaches on the Internet to a wide audience.
