Kyiv National University of Technologies and Design
KNUTD became a participant of the World Network for the Promotion of Research and Education in the Scientific Development of the Complex Digital Systems!

Under the leadership of the Pro-Rector for Research and Innovation Prof. Dr Viktor Kaplun, with the active participation of the Energy Efficiency Center and the Project Management Office of the Kyiv University of Technology and Design, the first preparatory stage for cooperation with the International Complex Systems Digital Campus: CS-DC was completed. The result of the work carried out and evaluation of scientific potential is the signing of the Agreement on Cooperation and the introduction of the University into the list of institutional members of CS-DC.

The Complex Systems Digital Campus is a worldwide network of individuals and institutions working together and sharing resources to promote research and education in complex systems science and in integrative sciences. This large scale collaborative work will embody social intelligent strategies towards new scientific and educational practices, dealing with the difficult scientific, societal and environmental challenges of an increasingly interconnected world.

The CS-DC international network of institutions comprises more than 100 higher education and research institutions and was recognized as an UNESCO UniTwin in July 2014 with the signature of a Cooperation Programme with the Director-General of UNESCO.

The main objectives of the Cooperation Programme are to:

  • promote an integrated system of research, education and training, information and documentation in the domain of the science and engineering of complex systems,
  • contribute to the aims of global development by taking into account its social, economic and cultural dimensions and to this end, make the science and engineering of complex systems accessible to all, in order to get the relations between science, engineering, politics and ethics to evolve towards a sustainable development,
  • contribute to a research and education of the highest quality in the domain of the science of complex systems,
  • promote the development of integrated knowledge and integrated models of complex systens in order to bridge the gap between science and engineering,
  • promote a lifelong personalised education for all in the science of complex systems as well as in integrative and predictive sciences — including the integrative and predictive science of personalised education for all — at all levels,
  • contribute to an education and training in citizen cyber-science, open to all, independently of previously achieved academic levels, respectful of the diversity of social and cultural environments, genders, religions or ways of life
