PAUSE – ANR Ukraine program : Ukrainian scientists support
Since the war began in Ukraine, the PAUSE programme, led by the Collège de France , has set up a specific Ukraine Solidarity emergency fund, with the support of the French Ministry of Higher Education, Research and Innovation (MESRI), focusing on providing emergency accommodation of Ukrainian scientists for three months.
The French National Research Agency (ANR) has also set up an assistance mechanism to gather the needs and support scientific communities facing challenges, due to the current situation in Ukraine, in preparing or conducting projects.
Pause program and the ANR, under the guidance of MESRI, are developing a jointly coordinated scheme to support and strengthen the accommodation of Ukrainian scientists in French laboratories: PAUSE-ANR Ukraine program.
- The PAUSE program is the only entry point for institutions offering to accommodate a Ukrainian scientist
- The PAUSE program conducts an application assessment in conjunction with Ministerial departments
- If a successful application can be accommodated as part of a research project already supported by the ANR, ANR will then provide additional funding (35 k€), without further assessment, to accommodate the researcher for six months, taking over the support provided by the Ukraine Solidarity emergency fund, or or replacing the support requested from the PAUSE program.
- If a successful application cannot be integrated into a project already supported by the ARN, it will be considered within the framework of the PAUSE programme, which may provide funding following the assessment process.
Please consult the PAUSE-ANR Ukraine program text for application and funding modalities.
THIS PROGRAM IS FOR APPLICATIONS SUBMITTED TO THE PAUSE PROGRAM SINCE THE BEGINNING OF THE CONFLICT IN UKRAINE, THROUGH THE UKRAINE SOLIDARITY EMERGENCY FUND OR THROUGH THE CLASSIC PAUSE PROGRAM, AS WELL AS FOR FUTURE SESSIONS OF THE CLASSIC PAUSE PROGRAM.
