Germany (Technische Universität Braunschweig) MSCA4Ukraine fellowship displaced researchers from Ukraine

As part of the EU’s response to the Russian Federation’s invasion of Ukraine, a new dedicated fellowship scheme – MSCA4Ukraine – will provide support to displaced researchers from Ukraine.

Endowed with 25 Mio. EUR, this support scheme will enable displaced researchers 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 scheme may also facilitate researchers’ reintegration in Ukraine if conditions for safe return are met, in order to prevent permanent brain drain, and contribute to strengthening the Ukrainian university and research sector and its collaboration and exchange with the international research community.

The MSCA4Ukraine Programme will enable academic and non-academic institutions in all European Union member states and in Horizon Europe-associated states to host doctoral students and PhD holders/postdoctoral fellows for a period of 6 to 24 months.

Eligibility criteria

In line with the MSCA work programme, support to individual researchers will be open to all domains of research and innovation and aligned with the general objectives and principles of the MSCA, including scientific excellence, skills and career development, inter-sectoral mobility, equal opportunities and inclusiveness, attractive working conditions and work/life balance, while fostering open science, innovation and entrepreneurship.

Applications must be submitted by prospective host institutions on behalf of named researchers.
