NEP4DISSENT is  proud to establish an Emergency Fund for Ukrainian Scholars. 

NEP4DISSENT is an EU-funded, international scholarly network dedicated to research on resistance and dissent in former socialist countries. Our aims and objectives are presented in this report.

We are a community of scholars from 37 countries who stand for our colleagues from Ukraine in this dark time

We call all members of our network to disseminate this call as wide as possible and as soon as possible, to allow immediate distribution of the support. 

General Eligibility:

Scholars affiliated to institutions in Ukraine (including but not limited to universities, research centres, museums, galleries, NGOs etc.) regardless of their current place of residence. 


Start of the project: as soon as possible.

End of the project: 15 April 2022* 

* by that date we finish this 5-year long networking project and we will not have more funding to distribute. 



For scholars who currently do not reside in Ukraine or plan to travel to cooperate with colleagues participating in NEP4DISSENT on topics relevant to the network, we offer the STSM travel grants.

We will be happy to facilitate contacts with hosts, please contact us at info@nep4dissent.eu.
