We invite enterprises, institutions and organizations of Zhytomyr and other regions of Ukraine to apply for German expert support under the Senior Experten Service program (abbreviated as SES; the Senior Experts Service).

Senior Experten Service is a program of the German economy fund, which, with the help of the German experts, contributes to the development of the economy, education and social sphere in many countries of the world. The program has been operating since 1983, it works in Ukraine as well.

The peculiarity of the program is that carriers of many years of experience, who are older than retirement age, have the opportunity to invest their time, skills, skills, experience, contacts in expert assistance to others on a voluntary basis.

The fields of activity of SES specialists include various industries, agriculture, trade, construction, transport, communications, computer science, banking and insurance, education, health, tourism, public administration and other fields. activities.

The Senior Experts Service brings together more than 11,000 professionals from various fields. Over the period of the program’s operation, more than 40 thousand projects were implemented in the world.

Who can apply to participate in the SES program?

enterprises, institutions and organizations of various forms of ownership; individuals – entrepreneurs; educational institutions (universities, colleges, vocational schools, schools, etc.); local self-government bodies (applications from the OTG are encouraged); medical institutions; establishments of culture and art; non-governmental organizations and funds, etc. (note – this list is open).

In the Zhytomyr region, the SES program began to develop actively at the end of 2017. In November and December 2017 two German experts of the SES program worked in the region, of which: one expert worked in the government (Regional Development Agency in Zhytomyr oblast), the other – in a business company.

“Very often these opportunities are not in the means (loans, grants, etc.), namely in expert support, which just opens up access to financial resources and carries much more opportunities in order to bring the enterprise (institution, organization) to a qualitatively higher professional level. The Senior Experten Service program is precisely the tool that allows these opportunities to be opened. Moreover, it concerns both business and local self-government bodies, educational institutions, etc., and the development of the region as a whole. I can not but notice that it was the initiative of the chairman of the Zhytomyr Regional State Administration Igor Gunditsch who gave the symbolic start of this program in Zhytomyr region. So, during a working meeting in August 2017 I and Ihor Petrovich discussed the main aspects and possibilities of the “Senior Experts Service” program, and already in early November 2017 an expert worked at the Regional Development Agency of Zhytomyr Region”,says Zhanna Solovyova, Chairman of the Board of the Zhitomir Community Foundation, expert on regional development.

“Considering that our institution did only the first steps in its activities, working with the expert of the SES program, Dr. Hero Friedel, was a good impetus for the Agency’s development. For all the employees of the institution without exception, cooperation with such a specialist was clearly in favor. The expert readily shared his own experience and knowledge about improving the investment attractiveness and mechanisms for attracting foreign funds in the most developed countries of the world, what should be emphasized in their activities and what the investor is paying attention first of all. The fruitful interaction with the German expert was the launch of a series of awareness-raising events and workshops for representatives of the scientific environment and business, improvement of communication skills in foreign languages, development of new approaches and priorities of the activities of our institution “, shares his impressions Artyom Sachuk, Director of the Agency for Regional Development in Zhytomyr Oblast .
