Grand opening of the next academic semester within the framework of the project "Ukraine - Norway"
The diplomatic dialogue between the Kingdom of Norway and Ukraine started many years ago. A close political relationship was established between the two states, visits, meetings, and implemented projects were organized not only at the national level, but also in the regional centres.
On September 24, 2003, the Ukrainian-Norwegian project "Retraining and social adaptation of servicemen and their families in Ukraine" was launched. From 2003 to 2018, about 10,000 people participated in it. The aim of the project is to reduce the impact of the negative social consequences of economic reforms and reforms of the defense sector of Ukraine for dismissed soldiers and their families. Assistance for rehabilitating servicemen has been offered in more than 40 Ukrainian cities, including in 20 educational establishments, including Ternopil National Economic University.
