The SLORD Office expresses solidarity with all the people of Ukraine affected by the ongoing military invasion. Slovakia is showing solidarity and the Slovak academic and research community is committed to lend a helping hand to Ukrainian researchers, students and others.
The willingness to help and specific measures for students, employees and their families were announced by:
as well as the Technical University in Košice, University of Žilina, University of Constantine the Philosopher in Nitra, Technical University in Zvolen and many other institutions.
Science for Ukraine (@Sci_for_Ukraine) Twitter account has been set up to collect and disseminate information about the support provided by universities and research institutions to students and researchers from Ukraine. If you are an institution providing support, you can also post information on your Twitter account and include the hashtag #ScienceForUkraine in your post.
Labs from all over the world are offering places for Ukrainian scientists and scholars using multiple platforms. One is available at this link, which currently has more than 500 offers.
This wave of support and cohesion shows that the academic and research sector forms an important pillar of society, strengthening democratic principles, fundamental rights, diversity, inclusion and academic values in general. If we have the opportunity to help, let us help, even if it is only by ignoring the misinformation and fake news that is and will be found in our media.
We are updating the post.
