The article by the co-chairman of the Initiative Academic Group “Science and Innovation” (IAG S&I) of the Ukrainian International Committee on Science and Culture at NAS of Ukraine gives some considerations developed within the framework of IAG S&I and the Department of Physics and Astronomy of NAS of Ukraine on the pressing issues related to the need to transform the scientific and technological sphere of Ukraine. The author calls on the representatives of the academic scientific community to engage in a constructive discussion of these problems and to identify the first steps on the way out of the critical situation in which Ukrainian science is now. At the highest state level, it is necessary to adopt as soon as possible a strategy for the development of the scientific sphere of Ukraine and to determine its main priorities. Further delay on this issue can lead to an irreversible decline in the quality of the country's scientific and technical potential.
