We look forward to a fruitful cooperation with the National Academy of Pedagogical Sciences of Ukraine and its institutions, which have vast experience in this work. On the other hand, the issue of increasing the prestige of a scientist’s work, maintaining motivation for young researchers is being actualized”, – said the acting Minister of Education and Science of Ukraine Serhiy Shkarlet.
