The ERC Encourages ERC Grantees to Hire Ukrainian Team Members
The ERC has announced an initiative for ERC grantees to hire Ukrainian researchers and support staff as team members on their existing ERC projects.
This initiative does not provide any additional funding; grantees will be asked to fund newly recruited refugee team members from their existing ERC budgets. This new initiative is similar to the ERC's long-standing Implementing Arrangements programme with research funding agencies based outside the Member States and Associated Countries.
The announcement also indicates that the, as yet unpublished, 2023 ERC Work Programme will have a provision for researchers seeking asylum more broadly.
