Solidarity list for researchers in the Mathematical Sciences

The ongoing war and resulting humanitarian crisis in Ukraine has forced many scientists to leave their homes. The INI would like to do everything in its power to help alleviate this suffering. With this in mind, we have created the following “Solidarity list” to connect individuals and institutions wishing to offer assistance with those who are urgently in need of it. We hope that this will provide a helpful tool for those affected by the crisis.

Please email to suggest whatever aid you are able to offer. Your submission will then be added to this page. This may take the form of provision of office space, subsistence, housing, short term fellowships/positions, or other means not mentioned here.  Those affected by this conflict and in need of the support offered should contact individuals directly.

– Please note that INI is not responsible for any arrangements made between other parties as a result of these listings.

– We would encourage anyone posting on this list to also cross-post on the excellent

Thank you very much for your help.
