About 2021 U.S.-Ukraine Alternative Energy Research Competition

CRDF Global and the Ministry of Education and Science of Ukraine (MES) are currently accepting proposals from joint teams of U.S. and Ukrainian researchers for the 2021 U.S.-Ukraine Alternative Energy Research Competition.  

As the world’s population is projected to reach at least nine billion people by 2050 and energy consumption increases, alternative energy has the potential to become the least-expensive source of energy. Through the advancement of alternative energy sources, such as photovoltaic, turbine, and biofuel technologies, scientific research holds great potential to generate affordable solutions to this complex problem.  

To that end, CRDF Global is currently accepting proposals from joint teams of U.S. and Ukrainian researchers focusing on alternative energy as it applies directly to the following sub-topics: 

Alternative Energy 

  • The competition will support U.S.-Ukrainian research teams engaged in basic or applied research in the area of photovoltaic, turbine, and biofuel technology. 

Awards of up to $72,000 ($50,000 from CRDF Global and $7,000 USD equivalent paid in the national currency of Ukraine for the Ukraine sub-team and $15,000 from CRDF Global for the U.S. sub-team) will be provided for 12 months.
