About BioUkraine

Through its Biotechnology Initiative, the U.S.-Ukraine Foundation aims to advance the state of biotech in Ukraine by fostering educational, research and business development in the sector and raising international awareness about biotech opportunities in Ukraine. The Foundation provides support to Ukrainian students, researchers and entrepreneurs who wish to engage with the international biotech community through educational exchanges, attendance at conferences and participation in trade shows.

Проект "Біотехнологічна ініціатива" Фундації Україна-США має на меті покращити стан біотехнологій в Україні, сприяючи освіті, дослідженню та розвитку бізнесу в цьому секторі та підвищуючи міжнародну обізнаність щодо біотехнологічних можливостей в Україні. Фундація надає підтримку українським студентам, дослідникам та підприємцям, які бажають взаємодіяти з міжнародним біотехнологічним співтовариством через освітні обміни, участь у конференціях та участь у виставках.
