Founded in 1816 the Lviv Polytechnic National University is among the oldest technical higher education institution in Ukraine and Eastern Europe. NULP consists of 19 institutes and 107 departments; about 2200 staff members provide education, including 280 professors and over 1200 associate professors. Since 1961, NULP has been educating international students; currently, there are more than 300 students from 20 countries. The university is a member of different international organisations: Magna Charta Universitatum; European University Association, Alliance of Universities for Democracy, Association of Carpathian Region Universities, Board of European Students of Technology; Association des Etats Généraux des Etudiants de l’Europe/European Students’ Forum.

The university offers majors in different technical disciplines as well as natural sciences, languages, architecture, humanities, and law. A 3-tier education system (Bachelor, Master and PhD) has been introduced at NULP. There are 67 Bachelor’s degree programmes (20,000 students) and 181 Master’s degree programmes (8,000 students), 54 PhD programmes (over 600 PhD students) and 38 Doctor of Science preparation programmes covering all major technical disciplines as well as some humanitarian and scientific programmes. NULP is one of the leading institutions in Ukraine related to close connection research with industry.

LPNU has about 300 international cooperation agreements with universities in the United States, Canada, Germany, Great Britain, Poland, France, Austria, Slovakia, Cyprus, Bulgaria etc. This cooperation includes the participation of undergraduates, postgraduates, PhD students and teachers in international academic mobility programmes, and the implementation of joint educational and research projects.

The proposed project concerns the Physical, Analytical and General Chemistry (PAGC) Department of the Institute of Chemistry and Chemical Technologies, which was established in 1944 based on the LPNU. The Institute of Chemistry and Chemical Technologies consists of 11 departments. The PAGC Department was established in 2018 by merging three departments: physical and colloidal chemistry, analytical chemistry, and general chemistry. The department consists of 20 people: 7 Dr.Sc. and 13 C.Sc. The three main research directions of the PAGC department are the Determination of thermodynamic properties of new substances and kinetic parameters of processes; the Application of Varied Analytical methods and the Creation of innovative green technologies and their intensification by chemical and physical methods.
