The Alliance recently held the first meeting of the Task Force created by members of the Alliance and representatives of the National University of Kyiv-Mohyla Academy (NaUKMA), in order to explore concrete activities and actions with short-term objectives as well as a long-term strategy to collaborate with our new associate partner and integrate it in the Arqus Work Plan.
The National University Kyiv-Mohyla Academy of Ukraine joined the Arqus Alliance as a new associate partner last September. Naukma’s partnership brings new opportunities for the Alliance to support Ukrainians and Ukrainian higher education through direct collaboration with this leading research and autonomous university.
Since the beginning of the war in Ukraine, Arqus universities have taken a very active role in carrying out a very concrete programme of joint and individual measures to support the citizens of this country and, especially, its academic communities. Arqus also endorsed the statement published by the 41 European University Alliances, calling for the restoration of peace, democracy and respect of human rights in this country.
Naukma was established in 1615 and today is the institution with the highest level of accreditation as outlined by the Ukrainian Ministry of Education and Science. It is also one of Ukraine’s few universities with internationally recognized diplomas and intensive international collaboration activity with other universities in Europe and worldwide.
