List of VUIAS Fellows 2023/2024

The Wissenschaftskolleg zu Berlin, in close cooperation with partner institutes from Ukraine, Europe, and the United States, has launched an initiative to support Ukrainian scholars in their effort to found a Ukraine Institute for Advanced Study (UIAS) in Kyiv. Full-scale institutional activities in Ukraine will only be possible once the war is over, but a preliminary virtual institution, VUIAS, began its operations in September 2023. The project is supported by the Volkswagen Foundation with funding of around 960,000 euros for the first three years.
