"The 36-months SUCCESS project is based on a twinning approach between one of the leading Ukrainian scientific and educational organisations, the Institute for Scintillation Materials of Academy of Science of Ukraine (ISMA), with their long term partner University Claude Bernard of Lyon (UCBL). The project gives Ukraine the possibility to improve the research activities of their highest quality in the FP7 thematic priority “Nanosciences, nanotechnologies, materials & new production technologies” (NMP), and in particular in the field of Material Sciences.SUCCESS include several main types of activities, thus forming a coherent plan for improving the ISMA’ capacities in a number of fields relevant to the FP7 Thematic Priority “NMP”:(1) Preparatory and analytical activities: preparation of ISMA Strategic Development Plan based on ISMA SWOT analysis and socio-economic analysis on Ukraine, Eastern Europe and EU level;(2) Twinning activities, based on the twinning and joint research plan to be prepared and implemented jointly by ISMA and UCBL, and linked to the Strategic Development Plan of ISMA. This activity includes, for example, exchange of researchers and young specialists, organisation of joint scientific workshops, set up of joint research experiments in EU, feasibility study of a joint virtual laboratory ISMA-UCBL and first implementation steps. Sustainability plan will be designed and implemented.(3) International cooperation activities, such as networking & brokerage, ETP and FP7 consortia integration etc, which will be implemented on wide European and regional level, involving other European organisations, thus extending the project impact.(4) Training and coaching activities, that will aim to increase the ISMA' understanding of FP7, build competences and enhance the Institute’s participation in FP7.Four peer reviews will be organised by the high level S&T specialists, selected according to a transparent procedure."
