The first Ukraine NCP in house training was held in Estonia
On 4-7 September the first in-house training of Ukraine NCP took place in Tartu and Tallinn. The first “swallow” in the row of the next visits was Energy NCP Andrey Tarelin from A.M. Pidgorny Institute for Mechanical Engineering Problems, located in Kharkov.
The timetable was tight. Hosts from the Estonian Research Council wanted to introduce their colleague both to their work, to the Estonian research system in general, and to visit various research institutions: Centre for Entrepreneurship and Innovation, University of Tartu; Institute of Technology, University of Life Sciences; Tartu Regional Energy Agency; Institute of Physics, University of Tartu. During the site visits it turned out that there are many similarities between Ukraine and Estonia. For example in the approaches of commercialization of technology education, mentoring and training programs.
