FENS community resources for scientists and individuals affected by the attack on Ukraine
The Federation of European Neuroscience Societies (FENS) stands in solidarity with the scientific community and all those who are suffering directly or indirectly from the attack on Ukraine. Our membership aims to empower scientists and advance brain research and education across Europe and beyond under the safest and most supportive conditions. Current hostilities are threatening this mission, the welfare of our members and the broader global society. As the voice of European neuroscience, FENS firmly opposes the invasion of Ukraine and expresses its support to our Ukrainian family, friends, neighbours and colleagues, as well as to the scientists and citizens in Russia who courageously oppose this war. We hope that a peaceful resolution can be achieved as rapidly as possible.
In an effort to help the affected scientists, FENS has reached out to the neuroscience community to share resources and opportunities to support those affected by the conflict, presented below. New resources will be added as they become available.
