The interaction of scientists and business in Ukraine is a very topical issue of our time. Igor Iankovskyi, philanthropist and businessman, founder of the Charity Foundation "Initiative for the Future", has been paying attention to this issue for a long time. On November 06, 2017 Igor Mykolaevych will participate in the discussion "Science, business, and innovations. What is the main?". During the round table with the participation of scientists and businessmen, we will find answers to the question of what innovation is, what innovations are of interest to business; are ready investors to invest in high-tech projects; and who has the first to start a dialogue - business or academics?
Last year Ukrainian government launched the most challenging, yet crucial medical and pension reforms. Large-scale social transformations are always painful: people are not ready to accept the new reality and reformers to explain the essence of the reform. Meanwhile, one of the spheres that have required a major update for a long time, experienced surface alterations so far. I mean the reform of secondary education.
Everybody is concerned by health issues: that’s why medicine will always be a fruitful field for the innovations. Nowadays it is being talked about 3D-printing of human organs. Fair enough, but the technology is only being tested, without massive application. Simultaneously, the field of early disease detection is being developed based on Big Data and artificial intellect possibilities.
