In partnership with the Breakthrough Prize Foundation, ALLEA has launched the European Funds for Displaced Scientists to support Ukrainian academic institutions affected by the war for the academic year 2022/2023.
The aim of this funding is to support Ukrainian academic institutions in the continuation and reinstatement of their scientific operations and research collaborations, as well as to support initiatives that facilitate the reintegration of researchers upon their return to Ukraine.
A fine chance for Ukraine students in Germany.
