Refugee scientists from Ukraine can continue their research in neighbouring European countries. The European Commission has allocated EUR 25 million for them in the Horizon Europe research programme.

 

The Commission announced this decision on 10 May. The EUR 25 million falls under an innovation programme that already costs around EUR 8 billion a year and that will also receive an additional EUR 562 million for the next two years.

 

"It is very important to help refugees, and in this case researchers," said Vice President Margrethe Vestager. "This new programme will give them the opportunity to continue their research, so that science will win over war."
