Thirty young Ukrainian researchers and project managers from various regions of Ukraine participated actively in the four-day-long program. The opening of the event was attended by the EC project officer of BILAT-UKR*AINA, Mr Thierry Devars, who provided a general overview of Horizon2020.

Following this, the program of the initial day included introductory lectures on the thematic work programmes of Horizon 2020 delivered by National Contact Points from Ukraine and senior project managers from EU countries. From Day 2 a hands-on training on proposal writing and project management was provided by project partners and invited experts from EU.
