Open4UA aims to advance the growth of Ukraine’s knowledge-driven economy for the post-war recovery by reforming the higher education system. This will be achieved through prioritising Open Science across different levels (from National policies to individual researchers), which is reflected in the project objectives:

  1. fostering the National reform on Open Science for the higher education system modernisation and EU integration by supporting legislation amendments based on the orchestrated National consensus;
  2. introducing existing advanced approaches and creating state-of-the-art recommendations and mechanisms to reform research assessment to prioritise Open Science at the National level during state certification of higher educational institutions and research projects evaluation;
  3. fostering the institutional reform on Open Science and advancing research assessment in higher educational institutions through developing and piloting related toolkits.
