Supporting Displaced Scientists in Ukraine and Europe: EFDS Programme Announces Second Round Results

The European Fund for Displaced Scientists (EFDS) Programme, launched in partnership with the Breakthrough Prize Foundation, has announced the results of its second round of funding.

In this second round, the remaining EFDS funds were distributed in support of 6 applications under Funding Line 1 and two applications under Funding Line 2, with the EFDS funds supporting 56 Ukrainian scholars who are still in Ukraine, including early-career researchers, as well as 6 scholars in European countries (Poland, Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Germany, and Austria).

The first round of calls, launched in May and June 2022, received overwhelming interest, with 35 applications from European host institutions (Funding Line 1) and 6 applications from Ukrainian institutions (Funding Line 2) selected for funding.
