UzhNU has started a new agrarian project of educational and scientific production center
On Friday, October 20th, the Rector of Uzhhorod National University Volodymyr Smolanka together with the Vice-rectors of UzhNU, the employees of the university administration and the team of the Biological Faculty officially began a new direction in the scientific activity of the university – the creation of the educational and scientific production center "Derenivka". This step was made possible owing to coordinated work of the university managers, the dean of the Biological Faculty Yaroslava Hasynets and the team of the Department of Horticulture and Viticulture.
The first 150 shrubs of two European grape varieties - Sauvignon Blanc and Chersegi Füzeleş - were planted on the area of almost 5,000 square meters. However, before planting the shrubs the workers of the Biological Faculty and the Vice-rector of UzhNU for administrative and economic policy Dmytro Soyma had to put a lot of effort. The land for the educational and scientific production center of UzhNU in the Derenivka tract, where a university observatory has been functioning for several decades, has never been cultivated.
The university Rector Volodymyr Smolanka notes that this event is significant for UzhNU, because this is the place where students will be able to practice and do research.
