The event took place along with meetings with the STCU Management, the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine, and with several visits to Ukrainian relevant institutes.
The EU Science Advisors assist the STCU Secretariat and European Commission in facilitating scientific reviews of project proposals and the smooth running of proposals processing system. They screen the European-based scientific assessments of proposals, and after analysis, provide scientific policy advice on the fields covered by the STCU.
