Recruitments and selections are currently under way for different academic programmes. The EUI is evaluating how to make the best use of these processes for Ukrainian nationals.

The EUI is actively mobilising its university cooperation networks, the Open Society University Network (OSUN), Scholars at Risk (SAR) and the Scholar Rescue Fund (SRF), to advocate for and put in place effective coordinated action towards assisting the Ukrainian university sector and scholars. Resources are being sought from these programmes and organisations to help the EUI to provide Ukrainian scholars with a safe academic space while in exile.

Through the CIVICA Alliance, the EUI is in contact with the Warsaw School of Economics and the National School of Political Science and Public Administration in Bucharest, which have already been hosting several Ukrainians fleeing the war on their campuses, to eventually support the two partners in their assistance to Ukraine.

The EUI is compiling a list of Academic initiatives/Scholarships in support of Ukrainian scholars. Please, spread the list and related information as much as possible among Ukrainian scholars.

The EUI Refugee Initiative is aiming at hosting Ukrainian asylum seekers, in collaboration with local authorities and partners, as well as to coordinate demand for hospitality with EUI members’ availability to privately host Ukrainians.

The Library has completed the first instalment of the audiobook to help Ukraine. The first 5 chapters of Homage to Catalonia by George Orwell were recorded with the voice by 32 kind volunteers. You can download the chapters from this link. We kindly ask potential listeners to contribute with a symbolic sum, sending the money to the EUI Refugee Initiative through this Paypal account. In doing so, please choose the option “Sending to a friend”, otherwise Paypal will automatically apply a service charge. Many thanks to all the amazing volunteers who helped us and to the generous listeners.

In the framework of the existing partnership with the Red Cross Italy – Florence (CRI), the EUI has established a One-stop Shop. It is a safe and confidential place, where members of the EUI Community and their families affected by the war in Ukraine can ask for direct information and support to the specialised CRI staff present at the One-stop Shop, especially in dealing with Italian administration, temporary and international protection. The One-stop Shop is open every Monday from 16h00 to 18h00 at the EUI main campus. For more information, please send a message to [email protected].
