A member of the KFI took part in the seminars held at UkrINTEI within the framework of the Open Government Week

On May 28 and 30, 2024, Anton Kaminskyi, Junior Researcher of the Department of Regulatory and Legal Support of the Laboratory of Organization of Scientific, Methodological Activities, Regulatory Support, International Cooperation and Training of Experts of Kyiv Scientific Research Institute of Forensic Expertise, participated in the seminars “Surviving the Storm: A Close Look at Ukrainian Scientists and Their Needs in Wartime” and “Ukrainian EdTech Startup BUKI: Tips for Scaling and Entering Global Markets” as part of the Open Government Week at UkrINTeI.

During the webinars, the needs of science, the challenges faced by researchers in wartime, the factors that contribute to their resilience, and the impact of war on the productivity of scientists were discussed. The participants of the seminars also received practical advice from the CEO on the development of the startup, information on its scaling from pre-seed; on the challenges and overcoming them during scaling that the founders of the startup face.

Wars have a significant impact on the resilience of scientific systems and scientists, often leading to reduced research funding, disruptions in scientific communities, and the cessation of research processes. However, they also contribute to the emergence of new technological advances. Researchers, as a key source of scientific knowledge, play a crucial role in maintaining the productivity and progress of science during conflict.

Understanding the experiences and needs of scientists can help to develop policies and strategies that support and enhance the resilience of scientific systems in times of crisis, especially during russia’s military aggression against Ukraine.
