ALLEA launched the call for applications for Funding Line 1 of the European Fund for Displaced Scientists (EFDS). Funding Line 1 provides funds to academic institutions (including universities, academies, and other research-performing organisations) within the Council of Europe region that are willing and able to host displaced Ukrainian scholars.
Hosting institutions will integrate Ukrainian scholars into existing or new research projects and departments, and commit to supporting them by providing the required infrastructure for scholars to continue their research work in a safe environment. The EFDS programme will offer a monthly stipend for up to 12 months.
A separate call for Funding Line 2 will be launched soon, which will provide funds to affected Ukrainian institutions to help them maintain and rebuild their research operations and networks.
