A networking event for exile researchers
Together with partners, the Berlin Center for Global Engagement (BCGE) is organizing a network and career event for Ukrainian researchers that fled from Ukraine and came to Berlin. The event is organized by BCGE, the Berlin Brandenburg Academy of Sciences and Humanities (BBAW), Berlin Research 50 (BR50), the Clusters of Excellence SCRIPTS and NeuroCure, in cooperation with the Clusters of Excellence Science of Intelligence, Temporal Communities, and UniSysCat, the German-Ukrainian Academic Society, Dahlem Humanities Center, and others.
PhD students and researchers from all academic disciplines that had to flee from war, violence and political persecution frequently face similar problems: They want to continue their scientific work but are often unfamiliar with the German research landscape, the academic system as well as the local funding culture. In many cases, they have to rebuild their academic networks.
The Berlin4Ukraine-event aims to present basic information on the structures and key players of the German scientific system, on the major resources available for refugee researchers and scholars at risk in particular, as well as information on the German science funding system in general. In addition, the event provides networking opportunities for researchers from Ukraine and from Berlin. Therefore, the program 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 about the program and the participating institutions can be found below.
The workshop will be held in English and is an in-person event with the option to follow via online streaming (except for the three parallel info sessions).
For a participation (in-person or online), a registration is necessary (deadline June 15, 2022): https://events.wzb.eu/ber4ukr/
The event is free of charge and a childcare service will be organized.
