“This is a pilot project of such a large-scale format in the premises in the central part of the city, where there will be synergy of all universities and such a hub for training specialists in engineering specialties. We want this project to be implemented as soon as possible because it has a very high added value since it signals all the associations in the field of higher education, as well as various initiatives and company involvement. It is a hub center that will enable the cultivation of professionals,” said Andriy Moskalenko, the first deputy mayor of Lviv.
The Research Center will include the creation of labs in various fields:
The Research Center will be located at 5 Kalicha Hora Street in Lviv. It is a three-story building constructed in several stages in the mid 19th century. The owner of the house was the builder Sylvester Berskyi. Initially, the house was leased by the Regional School Council for the Male Teacher Seminar, and later it became the property of the Ossolineum Institute. During the Soviet era, the building was used as a military registration office for the Galician district of Lviv. Since the 2010s, the building has been unused. Today, the premises of the former army registration office are under the responsibility of the Halytskyi and Frankivskyi districts’ education departments. To implement the project, it is necessary to renovate the building and equip the laboratories with equipment fully.
