The UK-Ukraine Innovation Symposium has been created to highlight the opportunities to both sides from collaboration at a time when Ukraine is under extreme pressure as a result of the Russian invasion of 24th February.
The UK has led the international support for Ukraine in multiple acts and programmes, and this Symposium is just one initiative designed to create connections, friendships and collaborations that wil support Ukraine in its current situation, as well as setting the foundation for post-conflict recovery and reconstruction.
The Symposium has three over-arching themes – Research & Development and Education, Technology & Innovation, and Entrepreneurship. We believe that there is a natural synergy between the Ukraine and the UK in multiple sectors, and we are confident that this event and others like it, will only deepen the ties of collaboration and cooperation between multiple actors.
The 2-day programme will be a mix of presentations, round-table discussions and informal networking.
All participants will be on an invitation-only basis, and will be invited on the understanding that they have something substantive to offer to the programme.
We welcome input from our participants, and are happy to facilitate presentations and round-table sessions that would met their specific needs.
We are also happy to facilitate meetings, both within the Symposium and through our wider networks.
