The Weizmann Institute of Science is offering scientists who are in danger due to their involvement in, or opposition to, the Ukrainian conflict, a visiting scientist grant to continue their research in Israel for up to three months. The Institute will assist researchers in the fields of Life Sciences, Chemistry, Physics, Mathematics and Computer Science, and Science Teaching in coming to Israel and is offering them airfare, accommodation, financial support (per diem) and laboratory space for the duration of their stay at the Institute. This call is aimed at ensuring the continuance of research by scientists who are besieged by the war and are not involved in the fighting.
