- Harmonization with the Digital Agenda and the Digital Unified Market of the European Union;
- Improving access to digital infrastructure and the Internet;
- Integration of digital technologies into production processes, or digitization of industry;
- Promoting the digital development of settlements and regions;
- Digitalization of science, development of Ukrainian e-infrastructures;
- Promoting the development of creative industries, cybersecurity systems and other areas of Ukraine’s digital transformation;
- Developing international cooperation in the field of digital technology development and digital skills.
National Coalition established under the initiative of the projects working group within the Funding Program: European Neighborhood Instrument (Erasmus +: CA2 CBHE) dComFra (Digital competence framework for ukrainian teachers and other citizens) 598236-EPP-1 -2018-1-LT-EPPKA2-CBHE-SP.
In July, the Carinthian University of Applied Sciences (Villach, Austria) hosted trainings for participants in the Digital Competence Framework for Ukrainian Teachers and Other Citizens (598236-EPP-1-2018-1-LT-EPPKA2-CBHE-SP), The lecturers of DonNTU took part in the work: Rector Yaroslav Lyashok, Professor Yevgen Bashkov and Associate Professor Natalya Kostyukova.
During the trainings, representatives of the Austrian University acquainted the participants with the pedagogical and didactic concepts and their implementation in the Austrian education system, existing in Austria digital competence frameworks for citizens and educators. Austrian colleagues also shared their experience in the internationalization of education, spoke about academic mobility programs, Erasmus + projects. It was interesting to get acquainted with the work of the didactic center of the University, principles of support for digital learning, new curricula and methods in the field of computer science. Also it was very interesting to visit the Smart Lab in Klagenfurt and the location of Infineon Technologies AG, the world leader in semiconductor solutions.

develop such a framework for Ukrainian teachers and citizens, which is also the
aim of the project.
On July 10, 19, in cooperation with the Small
Academy of Sciences of Ukraine, a visiting information day was held by
Professor Onishchenko Andriy Mykhailovych, Professor at the Department of
Information Systems and Technologies, at the scientific camp of Kyiv region on
the border with the city of Bila Tserkva. Andriy Mikhalovich spoke about the
work of the Department of Information Systems and Technologies of Taras
Shevchenko National University of Kyiv on international projects with China and
Europe. He spoke about the progress of implementation of the Erasmus + program
in the direction of KA2: Capacity Building in the Field of Higher Education,
the project “dComFra – Digital Competence Framework for Ukrainian teachers
and other citizens”.
8 July in the Austrian city of Villach started the training for the participants of the project Erasmus +, which was attended by a delegation of the Kharkiv National University of Radio Electronics, headed by the Rector, Professor Valerii Semenets.
On May 22, 2019, at the Faculty of Computer Science and Technology,
information seminars were held to disseminate the knowledge acquired by the
DonNTU teachers during numerous trainings. During the seminars, the teachers of
the Department of Applied Mathematics and Informatics, Professor Olga Dmitrieva
and Associate Professor Natalya Kostyukova, told the participants about the content of the trainings
held at the University of Vytautas Magnus (Kaunas, Lithuania) and at the Czech University of Life Science (Prague).
In her speech, Natalya Kostyukova spoke about the strategy of forming digital skills of the
population in Lithuania and Europe, educational programs for improving the
digital skills of teachers, the work of the Lithuanian National Digital
Olga Dmitrieva’s presentation was dedicated to the experience of the
Testing Center at the Czech University of Life Science and the strategy of digital skills
formation in the Czech Republic. She thoroughly and vividly described the
experience of the Czech Republic and the possibilities of its use in DonNTU in
the framework of the project implementation.
17 faculty members and staff participated in the seminars.
In May, a working meeting of representatives
of the partner universities of the project was held at the Pedagogical
University in Krakow. DonNTU’s teachers took part in the work: Vice-rector Yevgen Bashkov and Assistant
Professor Natalya Kostyukova.
The meeting reviewed the results of the
project implementation activities related to the analysis of existing programs
and curricula in European countries, existing trainings for teachers, the
digital competences of citizens and education workers in EU countries. The
participants discussed the development of competency profiles, didactic
approach to training, selection of certification program, development of
dComFra project web portal, quality control and dissemination of project
From May 15 to May 17, 2019 at the Pedagogical University
of Krakow (Poland), the 2nd coordination meeting of the partners of the project
“dComFra – Digital Competence Framework for Ukrainian Teachers and Other
Citizens” (No. 598236-EPP-1-2018-1-LT -EPPKA2-CBHE-SP). Measures related
to the project implementation and promotion were discussed.
The issues related to the results of the analysis of
existing digital competences (DCs) in the curricula and courses at Ukrainian
and European universities were considered, the overview of the existing DC
related training programs for teachers was presented, the Digital Competence
Structure for citizens and teachers was also presented used in EU countries.
NTU “KPI” team presented
operating plans, a strategy for sustainability and promotion of the project, as
well as a distribution plan. To this end, the following annual events are

of the study is the processes of ensuring the security of information in
wireless control channels and communication of the Internet of Things (IoT).
The purpose is to develop the concept of broadband Internet access and to
implement key security competencies in the implementation of IoT projects. The
model is based on the reference model DigComp 2.0, which was created within the
system of digital competence of citizens. Moreover, the main area of
competence of this model is safety. The task is to ensure that the IoT system
is running smoothly and securely. Methods used: methods of analytical,
simulation and temporal position-impulse coding. The following results were
obtained. The concept of security in wireless control and communication systems
of IoT has been developed. It has been shown that wireless high-bandwidth
technology, which enables high volumes and speeds of data transmission, should
be used to obtain high noise immunity to control and communication channels and
to protect information from interception. The possibility of seamless, one-band
operation for both traditional narrowband communication systems and systems
that use broadband signals is justified. A technical solution is proposed for
the construction of a broadband transceiver antenna system. Conclusions. The
use of high bandwidth channels allows for an almost unlimited increase in the
number of IoT control channels and communications. Pre-allocation between
channels of orthogonal codes implements the process of control and
communication without interception of information and interference. Moreover,
the use of the temporal position-impulse coding method prevents inter-character
distortions of coding short-pulses. This also reduces the level of distortion
of information signals caused by its multipath propagation, which guarantees
the security of information in the IoT system.
