Innovators Bridge North Rhine-Westphalia – Ukraine: Platform matches Ukrainian innovators with research institutions and research-oriented companies

Created by Katharina Fuchs | |   Nordrhein-Westfalen Lokalnachrichten

To help Ukrainian scientists, technology experts or start-ups with their professional development, the NRW.Europa team at ZENIT is launching a virtual cooperation platform under the auspices of the NRW Ministry of Science.

The aim is to build a strong bridge between Ukraine and North Rhine-Westphalia in knowledge-intensive fields. Secondly, the initiative will help Ukrainian innovators to bridge the gap to let them return to work with the knowledge and skills acquired through their cooperation with organisations in NRW.

Both sides, i.e. both the North Rhine-Westphalian job and project providers and the Ukrainian expertise providers, create profiles for the platform that are only visible to registered actors. Afterwards, the potential partners can find each other - according to the professional requirements and forms - via filter functions. Personal video meetings can also be arranged directly via the platform.

Benefits for Ukrainian professionals (Seeking for project jobs and/or contracts):

  • A (new) source of income
  • Temporary posts or projects with NRW organisations, either on-site in NRW or remote
  • Service contracts
  • New jobs advertised on a regular basis
  • The possibility to raise their visibility and contribute their expertise
  • Easy online contact to potential job providers
  • An opportunity to gain further experience and skills as well as make new contacts
  • A meaningful way to spend the time until they can return to their former activities


Are you a Ukrainian innovator, researcher, start-up founder or technology expert?

Are you interested in engaging in a research, innovation or digitalization project in Germany's main economic region North Rhine-Westphalia - on site or remote?
