Young scholars from Ukraine will be able to join Talented Young Scientist Program (TYSP). The abovementioned proposal aimed to expand Ukrainian-Chinese scientific and technical cooperation was announced by Li Meng, Vice Minister of Ministry of Science and Technology of the People's Republic of China, during the meeting with Deputy Minister of Education and Science of Ukraine Maksym Strikha.
The Vice Minister Li Meng informed that TYSP is Chinese governments international mobility scheme aimed at cultivating future leading science and technology personalities together with other developing countries. TYSP promotes cross border exchanges of excellent young scientists, scholars and researchers. This program offers job opportunities and sponsorship for talented young scientist from developing countries to work in China on full time basis for 6/12 months, together with China’s team.
"China-Ukraine Science, Technology and Innovation exhibition is underway in Kyiv within the framework of the "Innovation Market" forum is highly appreciated. It confirms the need for further deepening of scientific and technological cooperation between our countries. And one of its promising areas should be the scientific exchange and conducting of joint scientific activities involving, first and foremost, young scientists", Li Meng underscored.
The Deputy Minister of Education and Science of Ukraine noted that the proposal concerning participation in the TYSP is of utmost importance for Ukraine, but such cooperation should not be on a unilateral basis. Ukraine will also be able to offer Chinese young scientists a program for internships in our universities and academic institutions.
The Chinese side considers investments of high-tech companies of China in the development of Ukrainian technological parks as another opportunity aimed at deepening scientific cooperation between the two countries.
In turn, the Ukrainian delegation suggested the Chinese side to create a joint project in the field of astronomy, meteorite and space debris research with the participation of Chinese and Ukrainian Antarctic stations. The Governments of both countries will consider this opportunity in the near future.
