The rector of the UPCT, Beatriz Miguel, and the rector of the Podillia State University, Volodymyr Ivanyshyn, have signed today the first cooperation agreement between a Ukrainian university and the European University of Technology (EUt+).

The memorandum of understanding opens up to the rest of the EUt+ universities the lines of collaboration that the UPCT already has with this Ukrainian university, from which this year both students and university staff have arrived in Cartagena escaping from the war provoked by the Russian invasion.

In addition to student and staff mobility, the agreement promotes collaboration between researchers. "We will look for projects and funding to help Ukraine recover from the war," said Beatriz Miguel.

"The University of Podolia stands out, like ours, for its agronomic research, so it will be able to collaborate in this field with several of the EUt+ universities," said Rafael Toledo, Vice-Rector for Internationalisation and European University.

The signing of the agreement was also attended by Iryna Humeniuk, head of the Language Service at Podillia State University, and Liliya Prokopchuk, who is doing her PhD in Business at UPCT. Both came to Cartagena on Erasmus scholarships fleeing the war.

Prokopchuk presented last week, at the final of the UPCT's CORE entrepreneurship programme, a business project to bring a franchise of a Ukrainian ergonomic furniture company to Spain.

In addition to this agreement, the UPCT has announced scholarships for Ukrainian students to enrol in bachelor's, master's and doctoral studies.
