Support for Ukraine 

Support for Ukraine

We ask for the planetary community’s help to share information and identify support schemes for colleagues in Ukraine and displaced researchers.

The news of the outbreak of war within the European continent was undoubtedly shocking to us all. Europlanet has established many collaborations with Ukrainian scientists, especially through the three facilities in the Europlanet Telescope Network that are located in Ukraine. We express our solidarity with the Ukrainian people in general and our colleagues in the planetary science community in particular, and condemn the invasion by Russia in the strongest possible terms. 

For displaced colleagues needing support to travel within the EU, Europlanet can offer some short-term positions, bursaries and mobility grants. Researchers who are citizens or residents of Ukraine are also welcome to apply for support for visits inside Ukraine, lasting up to 30 days, with the aim of continuing research, building new collaborations related to planetary science and developing additional skills. Europlanet also encourages researchers in Ukraine to apply for astronomical observations with the Europlanet Telescope Network. For details, please contact 

We have compiled and are updating a page listing support schemes offered by the European Union, as well as individual countries, funding bodies, institutions and organisations. If there are other schemes and activities we should add to the list, please let us know.
