Day of Inventors and Innovators in Ukraine Day of Inventors and Innovators, also known as Inventor's Day, is celebrated in Ukraine on the third Saturday in September. This professional holiday was officially established in 1994.

The history of Inventor's Day in Ukraine dates back to the Soviet era. In 1957, the Academy of Sciences of the USSR established the Day of Inventors and Innovators. The holiday was celebrated on June 25. After the dissolution of the Soviet Union, some former Soviet republics abolished the celebration, some renamed it and some moved the holiday to another date.

In Ukraine, Inventor's Day was re-established by President Leonid Kuchma in 1994. On August 16, he signed the law “On the Day of Inventors and Innovators”, which designated the third Saturday in September as the professional holiday of all Ukrainian inventors and innovators. The holiday is often informally referred to as Inventor's Day.

Ukraine can be proud of its inventors and scientists, many of whom were internationally renowned. For example, Borys Paton is a famous engineer who constructed the first welded bridge in Kiev. Igor Sikorsky, a Russian American aviation pioneer, was born in Kiev and studied at the Kiev Polytechnic Institute.
