KPI and two other Kyiv universities have joined the USAID cybersecurity project

2021.05.21 21 Participants in the USAID Cyber ​​Security Project Meeting

On May 21, three national universities signed a memorandum of cooperation with DAI Global LLC within the framework of the USAID (United States Agency for International Developmen) project “Cybersecurity of Critical Infrastructure of Ukraine” at KPI named after Igor Sikorsky. On behalf of the National Technical University of Ukraine “Kyiv Polytechnic Institute named after Igor Sikorsky” the document was signed by Rector Mykhailo Zgurovsky, on behalf of Kyiv National University named after Taras Shevchenko – First Vice-Rector Volodymyr Ilchenko, on behalf of the National University “Kyiv-Mohyla Academy” – executor duties of its president Alexander Humenn. All three memoranda were signed on behalf of USAID by Timothy Dubel, project director.

DAI Global LLC, with which the universities will cooperate within the project, is its executor from the USA. In addition, Catalisto, an international security technology distribution company, Florida International University, Information Systems Security Partners, an international specialized cybersecurity company, Schweitzer Engineering Laboratories, a Ukrainian technology NGO SocialBoost, and the company were also involved in the project. from strategic IT solutions “Veterans First Initiative”.

Why did you come up with the idea for such a project and why right now? The fact is that cyberspace is now becoming a battlefield. And attacks on objects that ensure the viability of individual enterprises, settlements, or entire states, can be, if not as bloody as in real space, then certainly no less destructive. However, destruction or accidents at such facilities can also pose very serious threats to the health and even life of people living in the areas concerned. Especially when it is enterprises of such industries as energy, chemical industry, transport, banking and financial sector organizations, information technology and telecommunications, health care, utilities, etc., which are strategically important for the functioning of the economy and security of the state, society and population. In a word, all those objectswhich belong to the most critical infrastructure. The issues of cyberspace protection are especially acute for our country, which has been in a state of hybrid warfare for 7 years. Therefore, this USAID project aims to help Ukraine confront the very real dangers that threaten its security and economy, and its immediate goal is to reduce and, if possible, eliminate the vulnerabilities of cyber security in the critical infrastructure of our country and its regions. .and its immediate goal is to reduce and, if possible, eliminate the factors of cyber security vulnerabilities in the critical infrastructure of our country and its regions.and its immediate goal is to reduce and, if possible, eliminate the factors of cyber security vulnerabilities in the critical infrastructure of our country and its regions.

The project is designed for a little more than 2 years. It has three main directions. The first is to strengthen the preconditions that promote cybersecurity (this includes improving and bringing into line with international standards the legal and institutional framework of the national sphere of cybersecurity). The second is the development of a sustainable cybersecurity industry in Ukraine. And the third, which primarily concerns Ukrainian universities, is the development of national human resources in the field of cybersecurity.

This third component should help address staffing gaps in cybersecurity through training measures for new qualified personnel and assistance to educational institutions in improving the skills of existing professionals. The project will cover the entire human resources system, ie both improving the quality of education received by future cybersecurity professionals and improving sectoral educational programs to accelerate staff development in Ukraine, as these people will have to respond effectively to direct network vulnerabilities. . Thus, this area should provide assistance to higher education institutions in teaching a cycle of cybersecurity disciplines, including the opportunity to hone practical skills in virtual training laboratories. Actually,all this, together with some other specific measures, is reflected in detail in the memoranda. In particular, the project plans to provide Ukrainian universities with opportunities to provide students with practical skills in virtual training laboratories on cybersecurity (cyberfields), which will allow them not only to undergo theoretical training, but also to actively develop their skills in identifying and combating real malicious software. in a wide range of networks with simulation of real situations. It is interesting in this regard that, among a number of other measures to gain practical experience in the field of cyber security, the project, under certain conditions, will support even conducting among the free economic zones that are members of the educational network with access to training cyberfields,regional team student competitions in cybersecurity – very popular among information security professionals online games CTF (from Capture the flag, which means “capturing the flag”) – and hackathons.

“The document, which was signed today, provides additional opportunities to improve the methodology of our educational process in the field of cyber security. It also provides several measures to improve the skills of our teachers, who will then pass it all on to our students. There is also a separate training program for our students. These are some new disciplines that can be included in our curricula. And, very importantly, the project partners are several American universities that specialize in cybersecurity and can acquaint us with modern aspects and trends in its development, – said the director of the Institute of Physics and Technology Alexei Novikov, Kyiv Polytechnic. – At the same time, we should not assume that our cybersecurity experts are lagging behind in this area. We know a lot and are able, our teachers are highly valued,many of them also have international certificates. But contacts with colleagues, especially those as powerful as those working in American universities, will certainly give us a new impetus to improve the quality of education, introduce new plans and methods, perhaps provide access to specific software, and so on. Given that we have about six hundred students studying in this specialty, and there are also students and cadets of ISZZI, KPI will have someone to take advantage of such cooperation.that we have about six hundred students studying in this specialty, and there are also students and cadets of ISZZI, in KPI there will be someone to take advantage of such cooperation ”.that we have about six hundred students studying in this specialty, and there are also students and cadets of ISZZI, in KPI there will be someone to take advantage of such cooperation ”.

Finally, it should be noted that 14 Ukrainian universities have already signed documents on cooperation with USAID within the project “Cyber ​​Security of Critical Infrastructure of Ukraine”.

KPI begins cooperation with the Business Association of Japan in Ukraine

2021.01.27 visit to the university by representatives of enterprises - members of the Business Association of Japan in Ukraine

The first step towards establishing cooperation was a visit to the university by representatives of enterprises – members of the Association, which took place on January 27.

The association unites more than 20 innovative Japanese companies that have offices in our country.

“For KPI, expanding cooperation with large Japanese companies is one of the priorities of our activities,” said Rector Mykhailo Zgurovsky. “And our university could become a good communicator between Ukraine and Japan in the field of R&D, which would complement the traditional business contacts between our two countries.”

KPI leaders presented to the guests the innovative ecosystem Sikorsky Challenge and presented a film about the achievements of Kyiv Polytechnics in the space industry.

The annual festival of innovative projects Sikorsky Challenge attracted special attention of Japanese business representatives. Just during the conversation, the head of Panasonic Ukraine Koji Terajima expressed a desire to take part in its work this year.

The meeting of Japanese business representatives with the university management took place at the Ukrainian-Japanese Center, which operates in the Scientific and Technical Library of KPI. Among the participants in the meeting was Satoshi Sugimoto, the newly appointed head of the Ukrainian office of the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA), an organization that in 2006 allocated funds to support the Ukrainian-Japanese Center at KPI. The support was mainly aimed at promoting cultural events, acquainting Ukrainians with Japanese culture, language courses, etc. No special attention was paid to Japan’s cooperation with Ukraine in the scientific, technical, and innovative spheres. Now the number of areas of cooperation will expand.

“We have heard about many industries in which the university operates. Of course, there may be different forms of cooperation in different areas. I will say in advance that we will be interested in projects in the economic and social spheres, – said Mr. Sugimoto after the official part of the meeting. “I would also like to cooperate in the field of technology, because the KPI has created the best conditions for this.”


The attitude of Ukrainian society to COVID-19 vaccination

The team of the project “Foresight COVID-19″ of the World Data Centre “Geoinformatics and Sustainable Development” of Igor Sikorsky Kyiv Polytechnic Institute published a study of the level of confidence of Ukrainian society in vaccination against COVID-19. The analysis was conducted by online monitoring of more than 5,000 of the most popular Ukrainian and foreign media resources and social networks using the integrated on-line platform “Advanced Analytics” of Igor Sikorsky Kyiv Polytechnic Institute Information and Analytical Situation Centre. The expert conclusions of the L.V. Gromashevsky Institute of Epidemiology and Infectious Diseases of the National Academy of Medical Sciences of Ukraine were taken into account.

It has been shown that COVID vaccination in different countries and regions of the world is characterized by different rates of implementation and different levels of public confidence. While Britain and the United States have already vaccinated up to 2% of the population and Israel 16%, vaccination is just beginning in the EU. In Ukraine, this process takes place only at the level of public discussion. The highest levels of confidence in vaccination are observed in China, Brazil, South Africa and South Korea. There is a positive attitude to vaccination  in Spain, Denmark, Great Britain, Portugal, Italy, Germany and the Netherlands. The lowest levels of trust are observed in Poland, Russia, France and Ukraine – 56%, 54%, 46% and 24% respectively.

Monitoring the attitude of Ukrainians to vaccination against COVID-19 showed their significant uncertainty, which ranges from 53% to 81% with a conflict rate of C = 0.33. The maximum polarization of opinions in society is achieved at C = 1. In the segment of the studied media resources and social networks, there was a balance between the number of positive and negative attitudes, which ranged from 10% to 24% with little positive synergy in society.

Regarding the use of specific vaccines, the greatest public trust of Ukrainians is given to the vaccine of Oxford Uni – AstraZeneca. The Moderna vaccine is in second place. On the third – Sinovac Biotech. On the fourth – Pfizer – BioNTech. And on the last – Gamaleya Sputnik V. Regarding the possible registration and use of the Russian vaccine Gamaleya Sputnik V in Ukraine, the results indicate a high level of uncertainty about the attitude of the population to the feasibility of its use in Ukraine (from 62% to 86%), with approximately equal number of positive and negative responses in the range (8 % -24%).

Preparations for the mass vaccination of the population of Ukraine against COVID-19 should be supported by active information support at the state level. In order to plan this event, it is advisable to assess the real incidence of COVID-19 in Ukraine by creating data collection networks to detect cases of COVID-19, which were not confirmed by PCR testing and were not included in official statistics.


Igor Sikorsky Kyiv Polytechnic Institute Took Part in “Hayabusa2” Space Mission

The MASCOT module successfully completed a space mission and delivered soil to Earth from the asteroid Ryugu. Had Igor Sikorsky Kyiv Polytechnic Institute not made heat pipes for the device, “Hayabusa2” would not have been able to survey the asteroid for more than a year and collect samples.
The space mission began on December 3, 2014 – with the launch of the Japanese spacecraft “Hayabusa-2” from the largest rocket-launch complex Tanegashima. It aimed to study a Class C dark asteroid of the rare spectral type, in particular to deliver soil samples. The asteroid Ryugu, whose measures are approximately 1 kilometer (0.6 mi) in diameter, was chosen as the target, the orbit in the perihelion enters the Earth’s orbit, and in aphelion it touches the orbit of Mars. The space probe has travelled more than three billion kilometers to the research object. Since October, the MASCOT module, descending from a height of 51 meters, has taken a series of photos, successfully landed on the asteroid and took the soil samples for research.

The module approximately measures 30x30x20cm and has a mass of 9.6kg. It was developed by the German Aerospace Center and The National Centre for Space Studies of France in cooperation with experts of Igor Sikorsky Kyiv Polytechnic Institute.


Lev Gromashevsky Institute of Epidemiology and Infectious Diseases and Igor Sikorsky Kyiv Polytechnic Institute Signed a Cooperation Agreement

2020.12.09 Lev Gromashevsky Institute of Epidemiology and Infectious Diseases and Igor Sikorsky Kyiv Polytechnic Institute Signed a Cooperation Agreement

The parties agreed to carry out joint predictive research. They already have developed 16 joint projects, yet an official cooperation agreement has been signed today.

Rector of Igor Sikorsky Kyiv Polytechnic Institute Mykhailo Zgurovskyi stressed the importance of this step:

‘Our friendly partnership with Lev Gromashevsky Institute of Epidemiology and Infectious Diseases becomes formalized. We have been working on joint research since the beginning of the coronavirus pandemic. We have combined efforts of epidemiologists, experts in medicine and mathematics, computing specialists. We have brought together extremely different knowledge, but, combining, we get new results, a new vision in our analyses and predictions. When we realized that we were one team, we decided to seal a pact of friendship and cooperation agreement.’
