The TRS temporary host program will enable Ukrainian lecturers to get a contract as visiting lecturers at the UB. The goal is to offer the chance to continue their academic and research careers at the University of Barcelona.
The program is available for teaching and research staff who moved due to the war and who are interested in teaching and research in any of the centres of the University of Barcelona. Two of them are husband and wife Oleksander and Maruna Martynaneko.
Moreover, from April until late this year, the University of Barcelona will work on another action to cooperate from the distance, in the academic and research fields, with the Ukrainian teaching staff, and the administration and services staff who are still in Ukraine. Among other options, this initiative will allow these people to:
- Access a free-of-charge remote mentorship program for trainee research staff.
- Take part in online training programs for the staff, customized and of interest within the regular UB offering.
- Have access to other events such as seminars or research sessions.
