Ukraine Scientific Scholarship Program Dresden (UKRAPRO)

Our institute and the Max Planck Institute for the Physics of Complex Systems (MPI PKS) supports the initative of the Kyiv Academic University (KAU), the Leibniz Institute for Solid State and Materials Research Dresden (IFW), and the Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR).

The scholarship program should support Ukrainian scientists who had to leave their home country as a result of the invasion by the Russian army. It is designed to enable them to continue their research work for at least a limited time in Dresden. In addition to using our own funds, we coordinate funding from the Leibniz Association, the Volkswagen Foundation and the Free State of Saxony. 

The Max Planck Institute for Chemical Physics of Solids operates interdisciplinarily in the scientific fields of solid state chemistry and physics of condensed matter, together with employees from regions and cultures around the world. An open minded environment and intercultural understanding are fundamental requirements for a productive working atmosphere in the institute. [more]
