Lessons learnt and good practices in the process of Ukarine's association to the EU Framework Programmes were in the focus of the 2nd Stakeholders’ Forum of the BILAT-UKR*AINA project. Also on the agenda were STI policies and other measures to promote innovation. In addition to presentations by expert speakers the forum offered plenty of opportunity for discussions. The event attracted more than 70 participants.

Since Ukraine will officially associate to Horizon 2020 in the forthcoming months, the relevance of the event was obvious. Research and innovation are important fields in which Ukraine is developing closer ties with the EU. The significance of the event was underlined by the attendance of Dr. Maksym Strikha, Deputy Minister of Education and Science for Ukraine, Anatoly Zagorodny, Vice President of the National Academy of Science of Ukraine as well as Thierry Devars, International Relations Officer of the EC responsible for the BILAT-UKR*AINA. On behalf of the consortium, Mr. Gorazd Weiss, BILAT-UKR*AINA project coordinator, presented the latest project results.
