PACT4Ukraine – our aim

Building on many years of cooperation via ERASMUS with Ukrainian universities, the “PACT4Ukraine” project at FAU is creating an academic corridor for Ukrainian students, scholars, and staff. We aim to support our Ukrainian partner universities to continue their research and teaching and to advise Ukrainian refugees on study and cooperation opportunities. The focus lies on maintaining and strengthening the Ukrainian higher education system.

We would like to work closely with our 6 partner universities in the future and are open to further cooperation with Ukrainian universities. Our current partners are:

  • Taras Shevchenko National University of Kyiv (KNU). The cooperation with KNU is in the hub of our project and a KNU-FAU Alliance was built.
  • Simon Kuznets Kharkiv National University of Economics
  • N. Karazin Kharkiv National University
  • Mariupol State University
  • Kherson State University
  • Ivan Franko National University of Lviv

The foundation „Innovation in der Hochschullehre“ is funding this project and is making it possible at FAU. We stand together. #FAU4Ukraine #FAUStandsWithUkraine
