Three Ukrainian researchers will have the opportunity to work in Charlotte Boccara’s, Espen Melum’s and Johannes Hov’s laboratories. They hope that more research communities will have the opportunity to welcome visiting researchers from Ukraine.
Among the Ukrainian refugees who are now coming to Norway, there are many students. The University of Oslo wants to contribute so that they can continue their education in Norway. For these efforts to succeed, however, the immigration administration must settle the refugees in or close to Oslo.
Many students are affected financially by the ongoing war in Ukraine and the sanctions on Russia. Students from Ukraine, Belarus and Russia can now apply for financial support through a national grant scheme.
The University of Oslo’s Scholars at Risk (SAR) Committee is reallocating some of its SAR funding to provide short-term support for Ukrainian researchers.
Norway to suspend research cooperation with Russia.
The Government's decision to suspend academic institutional cooperation with Russia and Belarus is wise. This reaction is in line with what we see in the EU, in Germany, and Denmark. The invasion of Ukraine demands it.
The world must strongly condemn the Russian invasion of Ukraine. Russia’s irresponsible and inhuman behavior is completely unacceptable and puts the whole world in a very dangerous situation.
This morning the world woke up to the news that Russia has invaded Ukraine. – We share a deep concern for the Ukrainian population, and our thoughts are with our affected students and staff, says Svein Stølen, Rector of the University of Oslo.
