Students and scientists of Kyiv Academic University are among those fleeing from Ukraine and continuing their research in Europe.

“Since the invasion in February, some 19 students and scientists, mostly physicists, have gone to the Leibniz Institute for Solid State and Materials Research Dresden, says Jeroen van den Brink, director of the German institute’s theoretical solid-state physics division. The institute also extended contracts for Ukrainians who were already there,” - Toni Feder gives details in his article for Physics Today.
