Czexpats for Ukraine

If you are a scientist fleeing the war in Ukraine and you need help, get in touch with us at! We can in principle offer 2 types of help:

  1. Urgent help to fleeing researchers to secure basic needs and to find job opportunities matching their profile and qualifications
  2. Long-term support of Ukrainian scientists temporarily working in Czechia with integration into the Czech academic environment as well as society in general

When contacting us with a request to help you look for a job, please make sure to attach your CV and answer 3 simple questions:

  1. Where are you currently located – Ukraine, Czechia or elsewhere?
  2. Are you open to opportunities in other European countries, or only Czechia?
  3. Are you open to relevant jobs in your field outside of academia?

Additionally, please explore the resources at our Useful links. As first steps in providing long-term support, we invite you to register to our Newsletter or participate in one of our networking events.

We see the impact of efficiently integrating displaced Ukrainian academics into the Czech research environment as twofold: in addition to mitigating the detrimental influence of Putin’s war on individual lives, we see this wave of international scientific mobility as a unique opportunity for the Czech  academic environment to refresh and move towards the aims and visions of Czexpats. If you would like to know more about our activities or would like to get involved, please get in touch with us at!

This project is carried out thanks to support from The Bakala Foundation

The new initiative Czech-Ukrainian Scientific Society has been established! We are very happy that our regular participants of the UA-CZ Science Meetups have decided to found their own NGO. At the September Meetup they voted for the statutes and a new logo. For the first time, we organized the Meetup together and our colleagues chose the topic “How to build a scientific career in Czechia”.

You can join the new organization by filling in a form here. For more information write to or join the Telegram group and channel.
