In 2012, after a few years of informal collaboration, the System Dynamics Group at Norway's University of Bergen (UiB) and the Finance Department at Ukraine's National University of Kyiv-Mohyla Academy (NaUKMA) launched an international project designed to build dynamic modeling capacity at the Ukrainian university. Called "Learning Economics with Dynamic Modeling". Built around a strategy of "train the trainers", the project has enabled 16 students and 3 professors from Kyiv to learn system dynamics modeling methods in Bergen and return to Kyiv to train their colleagues. A bachelor-level course System Dynamics Methods in Finance was started in 2014 and system dynamics has also been incorporated in several existing courses. A distance learning link has been built between Bergen and Kyiv, and when the first system dynamics online course began in September 2015 that made the partnership even more sustainable in the years ahead. Currently, NaUKMA and UiB have mobility opportunities through the Erasmus+ international project and develop a further strategy of educational and research cooperation.
