The Wallenberg Foundations support 32 Ukrainian researchers at Swedish universities

Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation, Marianne and Marcus Wallenberg Foundation and Marcus and Amalia Wallenberg Foundation have awarded grants that make it possible to employ 32 Ukrainian researchers for one year at Swedish universities.

– This was made to support Ukrainian researchers in crisis, but we can see that many of the nominated researchers also maintain a high scientific level and will contribute a lot to the Swedish research groups they will join, says Peter Wallenberg Jr, The Wallenberg Foundations.

The support is a grant of SEK 1 million for a one-year employment at a Swedish university within one of the Foundations' strategic centers: Wallenberg AI, Autonomous Systems and Software Program, WASP, Wallenberg Artificial Intelligence, Autonomous Systems and Software Program - Humanities and Society, WASP- HS, Wallenberg Center for Quantum Technology, WACQT, Data-driven life science, DDLS, Wallenberg Wood Science Center, WWSC, Wallenberg Center for Molecular Medicine, WCMM, Wallenberg Initiative Material Science for Sustainability, WISE.

The research environments that the centers constitute also mean that the Ukrainian researchers get an opportunity to enter a large academic network during their time in Sweden.
