Mykhailo Zgurovsky, Rector of the Kyiv Polytechnic Institute (KPI), met STCU Executive Director Andrew Hood on 22 March 2006 and hosted a short tour of the university. Among the items discussed were possible KPI-STCU cooperation in jointly promoting innovative S&T development and beneficial technology transfer using STCU’s project and sustainability development activities.
KPI is establishing a modern research park within the university, called Technopolis “Kyivska Politechnica”, which will combine business incubator, technopark, research institutions and faculties into a synergistic complex for S&T innovation and high-technology development for commercial applications.
KPI is currently constructing the Technopolis premises on its campus to attract high-tech companies to locate offices there, and KPI was awarded a 3-year/500,000 Euro grant from the European Commission TEMPUS Program to develop “knowledge management” processes in support of the Technopolis.
