The aim of the Summer school was to provide a comprehensive hands-on training on project development and management in the frame of Horizon 2020. The Summer school focused on the following four scientific fields: ICT, Nanomaterials, Biotechnologies and Transport.

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.

On the final day, participants presented their project proposal elaborated during the event with active discussion and mutual evaluation. Overall, participants were very positive, interactive and cooperative during the summer school.

As a follow-up, participants will have the chance to attend special online Questions and Answer sessions concerning the topics of the Summer School. The first online session is planned to be held about the possibilities provided by Marie Skłodowska Curie Actions in November 2014.
