The Human Frontier Science Program – ERA4Ukraine

The Human Frontier Science Program (HFSP) supports innovative basic research that applies novel and interdisciplinary approaches to understand fundamental biological problems and includes scientific exchanges across national and disciplinary boundaries (https://www.hfsp.org/ ). Since 1990, over 7000 researchers from over 70 countries have been supported and 28 HFSP awardees have gone to receive the Nobel Prize. The current members of the International Human Frontier Science Program Organization (HFSPO) are the G7 nations, Australia, India, Israel, Republic of Korea, Singapore, Switzerland, New Zealand and the non-G7 members of the European Union, who are represented by the European Commission. The secretariat is located in Strasbourg.

The HFSP can be commended for all their efforts to rapidly set up a support mechanism “Scientists for scientists” to help researchers affected by the war in Ukraine.

All HFSP supported scientists and laboratories are invited and will receive support from HFSP to host displaced researchers in their institutions. Read more here.
