New centre opens in Kyiv with EU support offering innovative education for displaced Ukrainians

An innovation centre providing multidisciplinary education in science, innovative technology and creativity has been relocated with EU support from the war-ravaged Donetsk region, and temporarily located in the capital, Kyiv. 

The STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Mathematics) Regional Education Centre from Kramatorsk will now be part of the newly established Interregional Education Resource Centre.

The centre, which is fully supported by the European Union and the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), will be a unique place for young people interested in technological innovation and will contribute to the professional development of teachers. Serving all Ukrainians, the centre will focus on providing opportunities for Ukrainians displaced from eastern regions.

Frederik Coene, Head of Cooperation at the EU Delegation to Ukraine, said the EU and UNDP would accelerate their joint efforts to help the Ukrainian educational system bounce back and be more resilient than ever before. “While Russian missiles destroy Ukrainian cities and villages, the educational community continues working despite the difficulties and dangers,” he said.
