The world's first oil lamp, the very first electric tram and rocket engine, the technology of bloodless blood test – this is not the whole list of inventions and technologies that Ukrainian science can be proud of.
How science can modernize the economy
SCIENCE SHOULD SERVE THE NEEDS OF SOCIETY
Today our scientists amaze rather for their quantity than the quality of their work. Imagine, the number of Doctors of Science in Ukraine is more than 16 thousand people, Candidates – more than 90 thousand. Over the past year the government funded the science branch by more than UAH4 billion. But why with such indicators our economy in technical and technological fields is one of the most backward in Europe? The problem is that neither the state nor society nor business is a real commissioner of scientific research.
UKRAINIAN SCIENCE HAS BECOME AN ATAVISM
In the civilized world science takes care of its needs by itself. The results of research are paid for by commercial companies that use relevant developments. In Ukraine there are numerous scientific academies, research centers and institutions. But the results of their work are unknown either to society or potential investors. Our Opendata.ua aims to fill this information vacuum.
SCIENCE SHOULD BECOME A SOURCE OF INCOME
Science should and can serve the country and society, bring profits. We invite you to follow the developments and reform of our science together with The Opendata.ua.
