Building human capital for the future of Ukraine

Welcome to an event hosted by the Stockholm Institute of Transition Economics (SITE) in collaboration with the Nordic Ukraine Forum. Join us on 6th of February, 2024, to explore and support the critical cause of higher education in Ukraine.

Join us for an evening of impactful discussion!

The Stockholm Institute of Transition Economics (SITE) and the Nordic Ukraine Forum cordially invite you to a significant event on 6th of February at 16:30. Together, let's delve into a crucial topic - the impact of the war in Ukraine on human capital and higher education.

Theme for the discussion

In the construction of modern Ukraine on the way to a prosperous future in the European Union, human capital will play a crucial role. Conversations on rebuilding often focus on hard infrastructure, and this important aspect is not always highlighted. On February 6th we invite to a discussion that will focus on the role the Kyiv School of Economics (KSE) plays in educating the future leaders of Ukraine and providing policy analysis to guide the reforms that are helping the country fight the war and shape the future.

In particular, KSE together with SITE and Stockholm School of Economics (SSE) will present their initiatives to support students and academics from Ukraine during the evening. Representatives from Swedfund and Nordic Ukraine Forum will highlight the importance and new opportunities for different projects and collaborations in Ukraine. The success of post-war reconstruction in Ukraine depends on our collective efforts to save the Ukrainian human capital.

Together, let’s make a difference!
