EDUCATION AND SCIENCE

EDUCATION AND SCIENCE

Being open to the world, gaining knowledge, and creating new senses and values. All these things are related to education that lays the foundation for a better future. We will start discussing this topic on 31 May at the All-Ukrainian Forum ‘Ukraine 30: Education and Science’.

Education is a process of searching, realizing, storing, spreading, and using knowledge and information for the personal development and economic growth of society. What should education and science be like in the future, and how do the new technologies influence them? The topics we will discuss are the following: EdTech, education and science digitalization, establishing a university to train specialists in the field of the latest technologies, and what place Ukrainian education and science take in the world.

Should education be the same for everyone, or should it meet particular needs and provide different tools for various social groups? During the second day of the Forum, we will be discussing education opportunities for adults, a barrier-free and comfortable environment for all participants in the educational process, including people with disabilities, and possibilities and prospects to implement individual education programmes and shape personalized learning paths.
How do we promote Ukrainian science and attract young people to engage in it? These are the topics of the third day of the Forum. Speakers will be discussing the issues related to supporting young scientists, universities as a platform for educational researches and science development, and state-funded innovative developments. They will also address the connection between the real economy and science.

The President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy will open the All-Ukrainian Forum ‘Ukraine 30: Education and Science’. Representatives of the Presidential Office, the Government, the Verkhovna Rada, the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine, presidents of universities, young scientists, innovators, representatives of the education and expert field, social activists, and representatives of the real economy will participate in discussion panels.
