Abstract : This study provides a general assessment of major science and technology (S&T) developments in Ukraine. The report is organized into eight sections: key findings, an economic and political overview of Ukraine, a description of Ukraines technology sector, Ukraine's science policy, the country's research and development (R&D) resources, brief profiles of Ukraine's main technology sectors, Ukraine's participation in international S&T, and a conclusion. The Appendices list prominent Ukrainian research facilities and their respective specialties. The author used English-, Russian-, and Ukrainian-language sources in the research for this report. Whenever possible, this study relied on primary-source documents published by the Ukrainian government, including the Ukraine Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Academy of Sciences, Parliament, State Statistical Committee, and Ministry of Education and Science. Writings by specialists at the Science and Technology Center of Ukraine (STCU) have proved very fruitful, though sometimes difficult to access through the STCU portal. The Ukrainian embassy in Washington, DC, provided a report entitled A Science Profile of Ukraine, which contained a great deal of background material on the Ukrainian S&T sector unavailable elsewhere. Other documents used in this study include reports by non-Ukrainian government agencies (such as U.S. government agencies), intergovernmental organizations, and the Ukrainian and other media. The author obtained all the documents used in this study from the collections and databases at the Library of Congress, including Eastview, Intelink, ISI Emerging Markets, Jane's Information Group, Lexis-Nexis, and the Open Source Center as well as the Internet.
