The participation of the PNU-UNIVERSEH team in these events is the implementation of the principle of Europeanization of Ukrainian education, which is systematically implemented by Vasyl Stefanyk Precarpathian National University.
It should be noted that Vasyl Stefanyk Precarpathian National University continues its successful cooperation with the University of Toulouse (France), the University of Luxembourg, the Heinrich Heine University of Düsseldorf (Germany), the AGH University of Science and Technology (Poland) and the Luleå University of Technology (Sweden) within the framework of activities of the UNIVERSEH consortium.
The main mission of the consortium is to carry out joint research and educational activities in the field of “Space for Earth and Humanity” under the condition of combining the capabilities of the academic environment around “space” problems and technologies.
