Success of young scientists
Two our researchers - Yaroslav Sorokin in the Forschungszentrum Karsruhe (FZK), Germany and Dmitry Trebushny in DHI Water&Environment, Denmark have finished successfully 6-months works under the grants for young scientist from 3-rd countries of EC 5-th Framework R&D Programme.
Gennady Donchits since July till December 2002 will continue fellowship research in FZK. In September 2002 Alexej Primachenko will start 6-month fellowship in FZK and of Dr.Ivan Kovalets in NCSR "Demokritos", Greece in the frame of the same EC Programme.

Yuliya Kanarska won Young Scientist Fellowship grant of EC INTAS Programme.
