In March 2022 the European Commission’s Director-General for Research and Innovation, Jean-Eric Paquet, sent the following letter to beneficiaries of the Horizon programmes asking them to support researchers of Ukraine in these difficult times. Horizon projects are invited to give special consideration to researchers of Ukraine when filling up their vacancies. Such opportunities can be notified through the Funding & Tenders Portal under the ‘My Projects’ menu. For more detailed information on how to do this, please visit this webpage.

In addition, the European Commission has launched a dedicated portal ERA4Ukraine with information on support to researchers of Ukraine by the EU, its Member States and Associated Countries, including initiatives like ScienceforUkraine.
