The Government of Paraná, through the Araucária Foundation and the General Superintendence of Science, Technology and Higher Education (SETI), announces the Program to Welcome Ukrainian Scientists. The focus of this initiative is the reception and integration of scientists in the Paraná community, but also in future joint collaborations for the reconstruction and strengthening of the Ukrainian economy through science and innovation in partnership with the State Government.

“Paraná is the home of Ukrainians in Brazil, it has a very strong connection with this culture. At this moment it is important to be open to receive refugees. With the Program to Welcome Ukrainian Scientists, we seek to demonstrate this also through science and academia,” said Governor Carlos Massa Ratinho Junior.
