The State Agency on Science, Innovations and Informatization of Ukraine has announced a competition of projects eligible for the Cabinet of Ministers grants for the teams of young scientists. The most promising applied science research and scientific and technological developments will be selected to participate in the contest in the priority areas of science and technology, namely: information and communication technologies, energy and energy efficiency, environmental management, life sciences, new technologies of prevention and treatment of common diseases, new substances and materials, the Information-Analytical Bulletin of the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine informs.

Volodymr Seminozhenko,  Chairman of the State Agency for Science, Innovation and Informatization said the contest would be held from Dec. 20-30, 2013. "The so-called prize fund is a strong incentive for participation in the competition. The grant is awarded on a competitive basis and totals up to 1 million UAH for 2014-2015," Seminozhenko said.

Experts say on Aug. 29, 2012 the government adopted a Resolution "On establishment of grants of Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine for teams of young scientists to carry out applied research and scientific and technological development in priority areas of science and technology." The measure came into force on  January 1, 2013.

Government grants, experts say, will allow prospective Ukrainian scientists to realize their professional potential in Ukraine and to form their own scientific schools and laboratories.

Experts also point out that the Cabinet is preparing to pass a new revision of the Law "On scientific and technical activities." The bill envisions the establishment of the State Fund of applied research, aimed to support applied research and development focused on the creation of new competitive technologies with the help of grants. The document also contains a number of innovations in funding arrangements and social support of scientific personnel, particularly young scientists.
