Area Science Park is providing concrete support to the Ukrainian population by funding two training/research grants for those fleeing the country, which has been in a state of emergency for months.
The institution has recently published a call for expressions of interest in two training/research grants in the areas of genomics and data management, digitisation and artificial intelligence, and sustainability and business innovation.
The grants will be awarded to people who were residing or domiciled in Ukraine before 24 February 2022, are at least 18 years old, have a good level of Italian or English, and have completed at least one cycle of technical level III higher education (according to the Ukrainian education system).
Training and research will be carried out on-site at Area Science Park in Trieste over the course of 12 months. The grants include on-site accommodation at Area Science Park’s Padriciano campus and personalised support from the Welcome Office for managing the administrative procedures for staying in Trieste. The grants are to be paid monthly and will be awarded once the call for expressions of interest has closed.
“With these two study and training grants, we want to offer concrete support to young people and welcome them to our campus,” says President of Area Science Park Caterina Petrillo. “It’s important for them to be able to continue their education and we want to help them settle in to a new study and work environment.” She went on to say that, “These grants are a first step. Should we receive a high number of applications, we will work with local research centres and businesses in the region to increase the allocated funds.”
To submit an expression of interest, fill in the form available on Area Science Park’s website and send it, along with a signed CV, by 19 June 2022. For more information, visit: https://bit.ly/ProUkraineInitiative
