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 323 calls where 429 Ukrainian organizations participated in preparation of 715 project proposals (950 participations), expecting EC contribution of 269.24 M€.
69 organizations are in 66 proposals on MAIN LIST (84 participations), with EC contribution of 11.99 M€. In particular Ukraine submitted 161 proposals for project co-ordinations of which 5 were classified for funding (MAIN LIST) with EC contribution of 1.82 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 32% of UA participants are from HES (73 organizations with 306 participations in submitted proposals), 36% from PRC (216 with 343 participations) and over 25% from REC (92 institutes with 233 participations). Finally 16 HES, 19 REC and 28 PRC, 2 PUB, 4 OTH from total of 69 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 favourable conditions for the intensification of cooperation between Ukrainian science and industry with partners from the EU and other countries involved in H2020.
