The EU-funded MSCA4Ukraine offers dedicated fellowships to support researchers from Ukraine, enabling them to continue their work at academic and non-academic organisations in EU member states and Horizon Europe associated countries, while maintaining their connections to research and innovation communities in Ukraine.

The launch was followed by a dedicated information session for potential applicant organisations and researchers from Ukraine. The consortium partners Scholars at Risk Europe, the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation and the European University Association will provide practical information on how to prepare an application, how to find a host institution, etc. Participants were encouraged to participate actively and ask questions throughout the event.

The MSCA4Ukraine application platform will be opened on 24 October 2022, but all materials to prepare an application will be made available on the project website with the online event. Information on eligibility criteria can already be found on the MSCA4Ukraine website.

Recording and presentations of the event are available below:
