New call under the MSCA4Ukraine initiative

On 5 August, a new call will open within the visiting researcher programme MSCA4Ukraine. Swedish higher education institutions who are interested in hosting researchers from Ukraine can apply for funding under the call.

Via MSCA (Marie Sklodowska Curie Actions) and the framework programme Horizon Europe, the EU is investing 10 million EUR in a second call within the MSCA4Ukraine initiative. Since 2023, the visiting researcher programme has enabled 125 Ukrainian researchers to continue their research and education in 21 countries.

The call opens on 5 August and is aimed at researchers who were awarded a doctoral degree no more than eight years ago. It is the host departments that apply for funding under the call, on behalf of the researcher. Host departments and researchers who are interested can partake of the call documentation already.

On 14 June, the first information meeting about the call will be held.

A preliminary time plan and more information is available on Scholars at Risk Europe’s website External link.
