HRB joins other funders to support the European Higher Education Area statement on Ukraine

The government of Ireland has joined with members of the European Higher Education Area (EHEA) to condemn in the strongest terms the invasion of Ukraine by the Russian Federation in violation of international law.

The Irish Research Council, Science Foundation Ireland and the Health Research Board welcome the joint statement of the EHEA and its endorsement by the Irish Government. The three agencies stand in solidarity with the people of Ukraine, including those already based in Ireland working within our research and innovation system.

We will work individually and collaboratively, in consultation with government, the Higher Education Institutes, Scholars At Risk and wider stakeholders, to shape appropriate solutions that will provide support for displaced researchers.
