In October 2021, Nataliia Kuznietsova from the Igor Sikorksy Kyiv Polytechnic Institute visited the University of Malaga in the context of the Erasmus+ ICM KA107 in which both universities are partners. During this visit, Prof. Kuznietsova delivered lessons to Health Engineering students (E.T.S. Ingeniería Informática) on the data analytics using SAS.

These lectures are the continuation of the lessons delivered in May 2019 and October 2019 by Prof. Kuznietsova at the University of Málaga. SAS is a software solution for data analytics, which is not included currently in the technologies learned by Health Engineering students. So, these lectures serve to improve the training of the students. These teaching activities are also part of the actions planned in the Educational Innovation Project of the University of Málaga (PIE19-006) (which Main Researcher is also the ICM coordinator for Ukraine: Prof. Ismael Navas Delgado). These activities also serve to enhance the international relationships of the Computer Science Faculty as part of its Educational Innovation Project.

Prof. Kuznietsova also presented her research activities to several PhD students of the University of Málaga. Her research is focused on practical applications in real enterprises, collaborating with such companies as SAS Institute L.L.S., EPAM, SAP, Cisco, Quartesian, Chiltern, Ukrainian and international banks, financial companies. Her research team fulfils national scientific projects devoted to developing the data mining tools for different areas: finance, medicine, risk analysis. This presentation was followed by a discussion on research collaborations, which will serve to strengthen the relationships between both universities at the research level. This presentation was organized at the ITIS Software (Instituto de Tecnología e Ingeniería del Software Jose María Troya Linero) of the University of Malaga. This activity will serve to improve the international relationship actions for Computer Science students and professors as part of the Educational Innovation Project of the University of Málaga (PIE19-130).

In addition to the courses (8 hours taught), research collaborations between KPI and ITIS Software are being considered.
