A new EU funded project has been launched - SCUBE-ICT

SCUBE-ICT is a novel project, funded under FP7-ICT. The project, titled “Strategic Cooperation in Ukraine, Belarus and EU in Information and Communication Technologies”, aims to enhance the cooperation in the field of ICT between EU, Belarus and Ukraine, in key areas of mutual interest in order to create substantial socio-economic benefits in all three regions.

To achieve its targets, a wide range of diversified activities will be implemented at two levels: Research / industrial level 1. Analyse the Belarusian and Ukrainian research and industrial ICT domain, 2. Create a ‘pool’ of key ICT players from Belarus and Ukraine to promote collaboration with their EU counterparts. 3. Advice and consult highly motivated ICT actors from the three regions and support their collaboration under FP7-ICT research activities. Policy level 1. Identify and analyse existing and future commonalities and differences in ICT R&D policies between EU and the targeted countries. 2. Support and facilitate policy dialogue towards future cooperation directions in the ICT Research and Development field. In addition, a web-portal ( has been developed to facilitate access to valuable information on ICT research and promote the participation of organisations active in the respective field. The portal acts as a virtual gateway to EU-funded ICT research with a special focus on organisations from Belarus and Ukraine. The project will be elaborated within 24 months by a multidisciplinary and multicultural consortium of 10 partners from 5 European countries: Greece, Spain, UK, Ukraine and Belarus.
