#ScienceForUkraine is a community group of volunteer students and research scientists from academic institutions in Europe and around the world. Its mission is to collect and disseminate information about support opportunities at the university, national, and international level for students and researchers directly affected by the recent Russian invasion of Ukraine.
Given the uncertain situation the support should be provided for the longest possible period, but not shorter than 3 months. Even such short offers (i.e., in form of visits) could provide immediate help and allow scholars time and means to apply for more stable positions or grants. Accommodation and office/lab space should be included.
We recommend that organisations collect information on support in a coordinated way. If your institution does not have a coordinator, perhaps you can act as one to collect the offers and submit them to us in a coherent way?
If you submit offers to us, please use this template (Excel). Just duplicate the file to your Google Drive or download the file.
Post the information about the support on your website! Provide as many details as possible including email and other contact details, so where people in need can get in touch.
Contact your country's #ScienceForUkraine coordinator if you would like to submit information about available support or need advice about #ScienceForUkraine.
#ScienceForUkraine is coordinated by Sanita Reinsone and her team at University of Latvia's Institute of Literature, Folklore and Art of the University of Latvia (ILFA): Elīna Gailīte, Justīne Jaudzema, Ilze Ļaksa-Timinska, Antra Upeniece
She is supported by Maciej Maryl (outreach coordination/press relations) and Michael Rose (internal coordination/onbording)
