Ukraine became a new member of Associated Countries (AC) in March 2015. Since then Ukrainian organizations are able to fully participate in Horizon 2020 on equal terms with EU Member States and other ACs.

Signed Association gives Ukraine a unique chance to increase significantly their participation in the H2020. This is evidenced by the results of participation in the first 274 calls where 383 Ukrainian organizations participated in preparation of 604 project proposals (808 participations), expecting EC contribution of 236.95 M€.

67 organizations are in 61 proposals on MAIN LIST (80 participations), with EC contribution of 11.95 M€. In particular Ukraine submitted 75 proposals for project co-ordinations of which 4 were classified for funding (MAIN LIST) with EC contribution of 1.78 M€.

These results classify Ukraine on the third place among Associated Countries just after Israel and Norway in both: number of participations and gained EC contribution. At the same time Ukraine reached 3 times better result in the number of participations and gained EC contribution than Tunisia, Moldova or Bosnia-Herzegovina.

Detailed analyses show that 18% of UA participants are from HES (69 organizations with 268 participations in submitted proposals), 47% from PRC (179 with 272 participations) and over 23% from REC (90 institutes with 199 participations). Finally 15 HES, 18 REC and 26 PRC from total of 67 organizations will participate in projects selected for funding.

UA participation results presented in relation to the potential of the country (GDP, GERD, population, number of researchers FTE) show that Ukraine requires further reforms to create more favorable conditions for the intensification of cooperation between Ukrainian science and industry with partners from the EU and other countries involved in H2020.
