Scientific and Practical Conference "Marine Research and Technology in Ukraine: Status and Prospects for Development"

November 22-23, 2016 at the Odessa National University. І.І. Mechnikov was organized by the Interdepartmental Coordinating Council for Marine Research of the Ministry of Education and Science of Ukraine and the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine, Scientific and Practical Conference "Marine Research and Technologies in Ukraine: State and Development Prospects" (distances - Conference).

The purpose of the conference is to formulate proposals for the development of a draft concept of a state target scientific and technical program in the field of marine research and technology, which is one of the important factors for the realization of Ukraine's national interests in the field of maritime activity.

Main tasks of the Conference:

  • analysis and assessment of the state of problems in the field of marine research in Ukraine, presentation of results of scientific and practical researches of the Azov-Black Sea basin and other parts of the oceans and their introduction into production;
  • scientific discussion of the prospects for the development of marine research and technologies in Ukraine, including the urgent problems of navigational and hydrographic and oceanographic security of navigation;
  • Identification of priority (at the national level) directions of marine scientific research in the short- and medium-term perspective;
  • definition of effective ways and instruments of interdisciplinary interaction of specialists of various branches of knowledge about the seas and oceans with representatives of advanced engineering disciplines, as well as international integration of Ukrainian marine science to European and world. Identification of priorities for scientific and technical cooperation between Ukraine and the Black Sea countries, the European Union.

The conference was held in the form of plenary sessions and sections working in the following areas: oceanography and technical means of studying the marine environment; marine hydrometeorology, marine geology and geophysics; marine biology; scientific problems of the fish industry; ecology of the sea; Antarctic research; economic problems of the maritime complex; international maritime law; shipbuilding and shipbuilding, as well as training in marine research and technology. The conference was attended by representatives and leading scientists of the institutions and organizations of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine, the Ministry of Education and Science of Ukraine, the Ministry of Infrastructure of Ukraine, the Ministry of Ecology and Natural Resources, as well as other persons involved in marine scientific and marine activities.

The conference was opened by the chairman of the Interdepartmental Coordinating Council for Marine Research of the Ministry of Education and Science of Ukraine and the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine, Academician of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine V.M. Yeremeyev.

The greetings were made by:

  • Head of the Southern Scientific Center of NAS and MES of Ukraine, Academician of NAS of Ukraine S.A. Andronati, who in his welcoming speech highly appreciated the fact that the whole elite of the Ukrainian marine science, despite the difficult period in the life of Ukraine, was able to meet to resolve critical issues, and wished the successful and fruitful work of the present;
  • Rector of Odessa National University. І.І. Mechnikov Doctor of Political Sciences, Professor I.M. Koval, who emphasized the importance of the work entrusted to the Interdepartmental Coordinating Council for Marine Research of the Ministry of Education and Science of Ukraine and the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine (hereinafter - the Rada), and noted that Ukraine will be largely dependent on the fruitfulness and effectiveness of the Sea, state or just a country by the sea.

Also the audience addressed the guests with the message of the Director of the Department of Scientific and Technical Development of the Ministry of Education and Science of Ukraine, candidate of economic sciences D.V. Chebercus In his speech, he noted the need to reload and rebuild the entire system of domestic marine scientific research, noting that the formation of sustainable mechanisms for the interconnection of scientific research with the needs of the national economy should become a priority. According to D.V. The most correct option for Chebkuca should be the launch of a state target scientific and technical program in the field of marine research and technologies in Ukraine, which, taking into account Ukraine's current scientific and technical potential and geopolitical conditions, will place new tasks, objectives, measures and approaches in the field of marine scientific research before scientists. .
