Ukrainian science is pretty cool! Our presentation on a new book on modern Ukrainian scientists
How many Ukrainian scientists can you name? Do you find the idea of a career in science as something boring or unimaginative?
On the 20th December 2019 the publishing house Osnovy, together with Farmak pharmaceutical company, presented the book Here Is Your Science: Ukrainian Scientists Who Change the World. Ukrainian journalist and showman Yurii Marchenko is the author of the book, and presents several problems in modern science: – the lack of awareness about modern scientists, and stereotypes about ‘unnecessary science’ are only a couple of examples. In our book we want to overcome these stereotypes and explain how Ukrainian scientists live and work.
The book consists of 30 stories of Ukrainian scientists who are already known for their discoveries and achievements. Each of them is a fan of their craft and believes in the importance of scientific advances. Mathematicians, physicists, biologists, archaeologists, and other researchers tell the story of why they chose a career in science, why they have kept working in it, and how science inspires them today.
