He emphasized that science always was an important factor and prerequisite for the education and culture development and labor force qualities increase.

“The progress of effective market economy is absolutely impossible without a powerful scientific base. The development of Ukraine was dynamic enough during the last 10-15 years. The scientific-and-technological directions ensuring the progress in the building sector have been established with their organization and structure.

Unfortunately, the last year was very difficult for our country. The internal political crisis and external military aggression resulted in severe consequences for the national economy. At the same time, the country has chosen guiding principles for its further development and gained readiness to work hard for the transformation of Ukraine into a modern rich state.

The State Research Institute of Building Constructions has defined the strategic directions for its operation including the development of technical regulation in construction and the raising of scientific and technological safety level for the building sector of Ukraine. Besides, the specific work direction concerns the Chornobyl NPP Shelter Object transformation into an ecologically safe system within the framework of the SIP international program. The fourth strategic direction of the Institute operation is to ensure the energy performance of buildings. The modern normative base created in Ukraine allows both the construction of modern energy-efficient facilities and the large-scale thermal modernization of existing buildings based on the experience accumulated in European countries, first of all, in Germany”, stated Mr. Gennadii Fareniuk, the Institute Director.

After the completion of reports the closing speech was delivered by the UFEMAT President Mr. Antonio Ballester who wished all participants a fruitful co-operation and invited to continue the meeting in the business communication format.
