Together with partners, the BR50 office is organizing a network and career event for Ukrainian researchers that fled from Ukraine and came to Berlin: Berlin4Ukraine: Meet & Learn. A networking event for exile researchers.
The event aims to convey basic knowledge of the structures and key players of the German Science System, to explain the key support offers for refugee researchers and scholars at risk in particular, as well as the system of German science funding in general. Moreover, the event is intended to provide a networking opportunity for researchers from Ukraine and from Berlin.
Therefore, a program was developed that contains informational talks and breakout sessions that allow networking. In addition, relevant scientific institutions, projects and organizations are present to give information and to answer questions.
Further information can be found in the attached program flyer.
Please note, that the program is still work in progress and that the time schedule may be subject to changes.
