For three years (2022-2024), we will support the activities of Czexpats in Science with CZK 500,000 annually. The aim of the association is to connect Czech scientists abroad with each other and with scientists and scientific institutions in the Czech Republic, to support their mobility, to help them find their way in the Czech scientific environment and to facilitate their return to the Czech Republic.
Institute for Single Crystals in Kharkiv is one of the leading R&D centers in Ukraine in the field of material science, physics, chemistry and pharmacy. Like many other institutions, the institute has been severely damaged during Russia's current war of aggression against Ukraine. The successful advancement of the UAF opened up space to recover from the damage and restore the research activities. However, Ukrainian institutions have been cut off from international grant programs and the Ukrainian government has been forced to reduce science funding for science. Therefore, we donated USD 20,000 to help the institute recover from the attack.
We supported the preparation of the new edition of the Climate Change Atlas published by the Facts on Climate project. The Atlas was published in 2020 to provide up-to-date and validated data on climate change and to promote debate on the topic.
