OVERAL GOAL

The overall goal is to Extend successful capacity-building efforts for Learning Economics with
Dynamic Modeling (E—LEDM) by achieving four primary goals:

  • developing capacity at an additional Ukrainian University LNU in addition to extending and deepening the capacity development underway at NaUKMA,

After three years of successful capacity-building collaboration between the System Dynamics Group at the University of Bergen in Norway (UiB) and the Finance Department at National University of Kyiv-Mohyla Academy in Ukraine (NaUKMA), we are extending our partnership to include a third Ukrainian institution: the Department of Mathematical Economics and Econometrics at the Ivan Franko National University of Lviv (LNU). Just as there has been a history of collaboration between NaUKMA and UiB, a significant relationship between NaUKMA and LNU has developed over the past five years, with LNU mathematics professors participating in NaUKMA conferences and NaUKMA finance department professors participating in seminars at LNU. NaUKMA and LNU professors have also collaborated on joint publications, and NaUKMA professor Lukianenko serves on the dissertation committee of a LNU doctor Oliskevych. LNU professors learned about the NaUKMA/UiB dynamic modeling education and training program, they expressed enthusiastic interest in joining our project team and developing dynamic modeling capacity at LNU. Thus, our first primary goal is to continue dynamic modeling capacity-building at NaUKMA and begin similar capacity-building at LNU.  All efforts are expected to help us establish a collaborative center of excellence devoted todynamic modeling of economic systems. The modeling methods would include system dynamics, econometrics, and financial and economic analytics.

  • engaging with economists at the Central bank in Ukraine,
  • assisting secondary schools in Ukraine,
  • developing a double-degree program for students qualifying in Norway and Ukraine.

Our E-LEDM strategy for extending dynamic modeling capacity-building

  • train the trainers in Norway

During each autumn semester, 2016-19, about 10 master and PhD students from NaUKMA and
LNU will take the three foundation courses in system dynamics modeling at UiB, along with about 50
other international students who enroll in our program each year. In addition, a special topics course in
dynamic modeling--designed specifically for the small group of Ukrainian students--will be offered to the
NaUKMA and LNU students.

  • train on-site in Ukraine

2018 – course “System Dynamics : applying of Differential equation” (Prof. Oliskevych M. O.)

            Course “Advanced Macroeconomics by using System Dynamics Approach”

30 licenses of software STELLA-Architect developed by isee system

  •  publications, conferences

     2017 – 8 students were participants in VIII Ukrainian practical-scientific conference

                        «Modern Information Technology in Economics, Management and Education»,

                        Lviv, 30 November 2017

                   represented the results with system dynamics – we submitted 3 paper with system dynamics results to scientific journals

  • provide online training to sustain the collaboration in the years ahead

lt is important that capacity building requires more than Ukrainians traveling to Norway to get training in modelling methods and techniques. It involves institutionalising the new capacities 'back home' in ways that generate a mutually reinforcing process that is sustainable within NaUKMA and LNU. We emphasize curriculum changes  nvolving new courses and new ways to teach old courses.   We emphasize utilising the new skills in research projects in collaboration with senior scholars, dissemination of the research findings in scientific journals and conferences, and building international collegial networks that provide support and motivation for further development of the dynamic modelling skills.
