Advancing Research and Cooperation Capacities of IHM NASU towards ERA

Published Jan 31, 2011

The ERAIHM project is designed to reinforce the cooperation capacities of one of the leading research centres of Ukraine IHM NASU and enhancing its part participation in European Framework Programmes. IHM NASU was founded in 1926 and is currently the largest center for research of a wide range of problems in modern fluid mechanics. The overall project objectives are:

  • to develop a strategy of IHM NASU aimed at ensuring coherence of its RTD activities with socio-economic needs of Ukraine, enhancing its cooperation with European Research Centres and participation in European Framework Programmes.
  • to develop and implement training modules at IHM NASU to build capacity in participation in Fp7 and to facilitate involvement of stakeholders in innovation process.
  • to develop a Communication and dissemination toolkit for improvement of IHM visibility for Ukrainian and European research centres and stakeholders, networking, dissemination and exchange of scientific information and design of joint RTD activities.

The project consortium consists of IHM NASU, the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH, Sweden) and Delft University of Technology (TU Delft, The Netherlands). The EU partners will assist IHM in capacity building activities and application of tools and methods for assessment of its innovation potential and competitive advantage. They will also support networking with research centres in EU for scientific exchanges and joint projects formulation as well as building competence in application of interactive backcasting for stakeholders involvement in innovation process in Ukraine.
