Description of the project

The innovation policy for developed democracies is a tool for the efficient and productive use of intellectual and technological opportunities. Presently, the Ukrainian national innovation policy is being formed fragmentarily, which results in partial use of the Association Agreement’s opportunities and only a partial approach to the innovation use level according to EU standards.

That is why the main goal of the project ‘Advocacy for pro-European changes in the national innovation policy’ was to develop sustainable mechanisms of cooperation between civil society, pro-European experts, and representatives of governmental agencies. This facilitated the elaboration of effective tools for both the development of the national innovation policy with respect to the opportunities of the Association related to the Horizon 2020 programme and the assessment of challenges related to participation in the next framework programme, Horizon Europe.

The project has significantly extended the public understanding of the innovation support opportunities rendered by the Eastern Partnership tools.

The public attention to these issues will enhance the potential of advocacy campaigns in the national innovation policy and spur up the implementation of European integration changes in this area.
