Pan-European twinning to re-establish world-level Neuroscience Centre in Kiev (NEUROTWIN)

Objective

The overarching goal of the NEUROTWIN proposal is to re-establish the Bogomoletz Institute of Physiology (BIPH) in Kiev, Ukraine as an international centre for excellence in Cellular and Molecular Neuroscience. This goal is set against a sound background of the existing infrastructure, intellectual traditions and the highly educated manpower. That is the adherence to modern procedures and international research environment which all have to be strengthened to achieve the European dimension and to integrate the Institute into European networks. We shall capitalise on the existing potential of international networking for excellence in Cellular and Molecular Neuroscience research, through knowledge transfer and exchange of best practice between BIPH and leading institutions from the UK, Austria, Portugal, Sweden and Germany. The specific objectives of the proposal target several key areas. They include implementing modern research approaches to scientific excellence and innovation capacity of BIPH via infrastructural changes, large scale knowledge transfer between partners, increasing competitiveness of the BIPH researchers in fundraising from international grant bodies. The quality of the scientific output of BIPH will be improved through continuous training of research staff in academic writing and boosting the quality of post-graduate education. NEUROTWIN will help to boost communication with the policy makers and relevant stakeholders in Ukraine to advocate the importance of neuroscience and neurology research for the improvement of public health and biomedical education. NEUROTWIN will step up and stimulate the scientific excellence and innovation capacity in the field of Cellular and Molecular Neuroscience, as well as strengthening scientific collaboration and international standing of the partners involved.
