From 2014 to 2018, the EU’s programme on research and innovation, Horizon 2020, supported 184 projects of 110 Ukrainian private and public enterprises, research institutes and universities. Between them, the projects were provided with grants totalling nearly €21.7 million.

A new article shared on the Facebook page of the EU Delegation to Ukraine talks about scientists from the Institute of Mathematics, the Institute of Applied Mathematics and Mechanics of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine and the National Technical University "KPI", who received a grant of €400,000.

Together with their European colleagues, Ukrainian mathematicians have developed a device to control blood sugar levels. They have also helped Italian surgeons carry out surgery on patients with heart valve abnormalities.

Horizon 2020 is the EU's biggest ever research and innovation framework programme, with a budget of €77 billion over seven years (2014–2020). The vast majority of this funding will be allocated on the basis of competitive calls which are open to applications from researchers, businesses and other interested organisations located in any of the EU Member States or countries associated to Horizon 2020, including the Eastern Neighbourhood countries Armenia, Georgia, the Republic of Moldova and Ukraine.
