Dear colleagues,

I wanted to let you know that we once again took the chance (and liberty) and applied for an Erasmus project funding for the cooperation between our institutions. The framework is KA171 (= Mobility of higher education students and staff supported by external policy funds).

If the application is successful we would potentially be able to support student and/or faculty exchange with a scholarship provided by the Erasmus program. Having said this, I also have to mention that the application procedure is quite competitive and it is by no means certain that our application is going to be successful. So please bear with us and keep your fingers crossed J.

We will receive information about the outcome of the application around June 2022. We’ll keep you updated on this.

By this chance I also wanted to let you know that I will be on educational leave from March 1, 2022 – February 28, 2023.

My colleague Julia Nell, formerly Julia Fischill (julia.nell@wu.ac.at) is returning from her maternity leave on April 1, 2022 and she will take over the Erasmus agenda from me.

Lukas Hefner, our Head of the International Office will also be available in case you have any questions (lukas.hefner@wu.ac.at).

We’re thinking about you and sending our best wishes from Vienna. I hope you’re doing well!

Вільнюський університет

Шановні члени університетської спільноти, дорогі колеги!

Новини цієї ночі стали потрясінням для всіх нас. Те, що було предметом наших тривожних дискусій, стало реальністю.

Ми живемо у складні часи, коли як ніколи важливі єдність та здатність діяти спільно. Тому я хотів би звернутися до всіх вас із закликом надати підтримку нашим українським колегам, усім людям України та один одному. Будемо разом зберігати спокій і намагатимемося в межах всіх своїх можливостей брати участь в акціях організованої допомоги.

Вільнюський університет, висловлюючи солідарність з людьми України, яка зазнала агресії з боку Росії, готовий голосно і прямо говорити про порушення прав і свобод громадян, виступати проти обмежень академічного життя та вищої освіти, а також відкрито підтримувати суверенітет Української держави.

З цього дня продовжується заснована влітку 2020-го року стипендія ВКЛ („LDK stipendija“), завдяки якій студенти з Білорусі, які зазнали переслідувань, отримали можливість фінансової підтримки та безкоштовного навчання у Вільнюському університеті. Ці стипендії будуть доступні і студентам з України, якщо події, що відбуваються, завадять їх навчанню та прагненню до вищої освіти.

З метою забезпечення безперервності академічної діяльності Вільнюський університет надасть одержувачам стипендії ВКЛ можливість обирати програми і рівня бакалаврату, і рівня магістратури. Усі витрати на навчання університет візьме на себе, а найбільш здібні студенти протягом першого року навчання отримуватимуть щомісячну стипендію.

Заявки на отримання стипендії можна подавати вже зараз.

Крім того, ми готові шукати й інші засоби підтримки членів університетських спільнот наших українських партнерів. Це стосується і пошуку притулку, і будь-якої іншої необхідної допомоги. Свою рішучість ділитися інформацією, знаннями та ресурсами ми вже висловили у своєму зверненні до наших українських університетів-партнерів.

Фасад Вільнюського університету, що засяяв увечері 22 лютого кольорами державного прапора України, і надалі буде символом нашої підтримки всіх ініціатив, спрямованих на підтримання ідей демократії та надання допомоги Українській державі та її людям.

Університет підтримує та об’єднує історично близькі народи України, Білорусі, Польщі та Литви. Він зобов’язується й надалі поширювати цей заклик та засуджувати будь-які порушення академічних і будь-яких інших свобод.

Університети несуть величезну відповідальність за виховання нового покоління, здатного критично мислити, яке любить свою країну і готове стати на її захист. У темні часи спільна університетська солідарність поєднує всіх, хто вірить у цінності свободи та демократії.

Збережемо спокій та впевненість у спільній боротьбі за свободу людей України та всього нашого регіону!

Пожертвування можна переказати на сайті фонду Вільнюського університету. Всі гроші будуть направлені членам академічної спільноти України, які найбільше потребують їх. https://vuf.lt/projektai/ukrainai/

Dear Ukrainian friends

As You know Lithuania is one of the countries which are directly supporting Ukraine in such difficult time with the military equipment and financial sources. Of course we are small country and our possibilities are limited.

However I feel personal duty express high solidarity with Your country and your army in resisting the crazy monsters coming from the Empire of Evil with the head of this empire nazi Putin.

We are sure that the black forces of our common enemy will not win and finally Ukraine will be with us in joined Europe

University of Redlands

Dear KNEU, 

We, your colleagues at the University of Redlands, are dismayed at the mass violence currently being inflicted on Ukraine by Mr. Putin’s senseless pursuit of regional dominance.  We deplore the destruction and loss of life such misguided actions have produced. As we know well through our interaction with the KNEU students in our joint programs and summer seminars, the Ukrainian people are hopeful, spirited, amiable individuals engaged in a determined process of bettering themselves and advancing their society.  

In its own small way, the cooperation between the University of Redlands and KNEU exemplifies the intellectual openness and global engagement that leaders in the Kremlin find frightening. While we are too far away to offer practical assistance, we do belong to international networks (in Europe) that have offered to assist Ukrainian students. Let us know if you need such help and we can try to connect you. 

Please know that the thoughts of the Redlands community are with the Ukrainian people at this dire time. We long for a swift end to the invasion of Ukraine and a resumption of conditions in which KNEU can continue, in peace, its mission of educating generations of Ukraine’s students.   

Stay strong,

Gerald Groshek, Ph.D.

Dear colleagues,

dear friends,

on February 24, 2022 we woke up in another world. Due to the barbarian attack of the Russian Federation against the sovereign and democratic Ukraine, we are worry about all our cooperation partners and good friends.

At the moment we try to find solutions for all cooperation partners who can leave Kyiv and try to come to Bremen. We know the situation in Kyiv in particular, but some could already leave Kyiv.

We want to keep in touch with you and we try to help whatever we can do.

We think of you.

 

University of Applied Sciences BFI Vienna

Dear colleagues,

Together with our national and international partner institutions from science and research, the UAS BFI Vienna is committed to the European values of peace, democracy, rule of law, human rights and freedom.

We take a clear stand against any form of violence to impose world views and opinions on another party. In this sense, we strongly condemn the violent attack on Ukraine. Discussions characterized by mutual respect and tolerance are the first and only means of choice to find a jointly supported solution in conflicts of any kind.

In these dark hours, our solidarity goes out to all people in Ukraine. Our special sympathy goes to all Ukrainian students and their families and friends on the ground in their home country as well as researchers in Ukraine and worldwide. Our thoughts are with them.

As a visible sign of our solidarity and with the aim to support possible cases of hardship, tuition fees will be waived for Ukrainian students if needed.

All Ukrainian students who are currently with us are provided with the best possible care and support.

 

With the highest hopes for peace
