MSCA4Ukraine scheme announced

The European Commission has announced that part of the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA) will be dedicated to supporting displaced scientists from Ukraine. With a total budget of EUR 25 million, MSCA4Ukraine will provide fellowships for doctoral candidates and post-doctoral researchers. As announced, an experienced consortium supporting researchers at risk will implement the scheme. Researchers successful in obtaining the support will be able to work in academic and non-academic institutions in EU member states and countries associated to the Horizon Europe programme. Further support will also be provided to them in “re-establishing themselves in Ukraine when it will be possible to rebuild the country’s research and innovation capacity”.

The scheme will focus on:

  • fostering scientific excellence;
  • skills and career development;
  • equal opportunities and inclusiveness; and
  • attractive working conditions.

Training activities will be part of the support provided to the researchers, focused on both developing research-related and key transferable skills and competences. As in the other MSCA actions, the scheme will provide family allowances for researchers’ families.

More information on the implementation of the scheme for institutions wishing to host researchers will be available after the summer 2022.
