Tools for the preservation and development of the intellectual personnel potential of the industry of Ukraine


The problems associated with the total loss of the industrial potential of Ukraine, caused by the full-scale invasion of Russia into Ukraine, have deepened even more due to the intensification of migration processes and the outflow of professional personnel. The most important lever of the post-war recovery of the industry should be the rational realization of its most valuable capital – the intellectual resource. Therefore, the issue of preserving, consolidating, and developing the intellectual potential of industry has become an acute issue for our country today. The article examines the problems and peculiarities of the intellectual personnel potential development of Ukraine’s industry, exacerbated by the collapse of industrial production, the loss of qualified workers, the strengthening of migration processes, the lagging of professional education from modern production requirements, the decline in the prestige of engineering professions, and the non-availability of the priority of the STEM approach in national professional education. The authors focus on the rapid development of technologies, which increases the requirements for acquiring modern knowledge, professional qualifications, competencies, and the opportunity to receive life-long education. Ukraine’s European integration progress needs to consider the foreign experience of cooperation between education and business to improve the qualifications of personnel and support the intellectual personnel resource in implementating the policy for the development of STEM disciplines and the involvement of young people in national programs to eliminate gaps in skills and knowledge. The subject of the study is the development of proposals for state bodies regarding the preservation, consolidation, and development of the intellectual resource of industry in the post-war reconstruction of the country. The purpose of this publication is to determine how to preserve and develop the intellectual personnel potential for the post-war recovery of the industry, considering the implementation of Ukraine’s European integration aspirations regarding the development of personnel competencies, skills, and abilities.
