The Advisory Evaluation Committee has finalised evaluation of proposals submitted under the «Ukrainian Unconventional Gas Institute» programme, and identified seven projects, with whom we will soon start to collaborate. Organisations whose project proposals were not selected, will be notified by 23 June 2014.
The British Council jointly with Shell Ukraine recently announced a Call for Project Proposals for universities, scientific institutes, non-governmental organisations and think tanks in April 2014.
The Advisory Evaluation Committee has evaluated project proposals in the following areas:
- Natural gas as source of energy in Ukraine
- Best international environmental protection practices for projects related to exploration and extraction of unconventional hydrocarbons
- Socio-economic benefits for local communities, districts and regions
The Evaluation Committee is comprised of experienced consultants with relevant expertise in energy, socio-economic and ecological sphere.
