This scientific networking conference offers for the first time an excellent exchange platform for German-Ukrainian cooperation in higher education, science, and research in Berlin and Brandenburg. In this way, academic networks of Higher Education Institutions and research institutes in and beyond the region with academic organizations in Ukraine will be expanded and potential synergies will be explored. The conference will include a wide range of cooperation highlights based on successful bilateral projects as well as a session dedicated to Ukrainian studies research in the region. Furthermore, a comprehensive range of information on relevant funding opportunities from both German and EU funding agencies will provide valuable information to support funding applications for new German-Ukrainian projects. Thus, this event will foster German-Ukrainian academic exchange and cooperation. In addition, the printed and digital info-brochure will be made available on the conference website after the event to inform a wider circle of researchers and serve as a valuable information resource in the future.
