Scientific Collaboration

MIT-Ukraine is committed to supporting Ukraine’s science and education by fostering collaborative research and knowledge sharing between Ukrainian and MIT scholars.

As such, MIT-Ukraine is participating in a number of initiatives designed to support Ukrainian researchers and educators.

Please contact us if you have or are seeking collaborative opportunities between Ukrainian and MIT educators or researchers. Two of our key ongoing scientific collaboration initiatives are highlighted below.

Global MIT At-Risk Fellows (GMAF)

Starting in AY 2023-2024, MIT-Ukraine is coordinating the GMAF program, a campus-wide commitment funded by the Vice Provost for International Activities for the next two academic years, to bring Ukrainian scholars to MIT for a semester. The program is designed to enhance the educational and research experiences of university faculty and researchers by introducing them to MIT campus methods and strategies in their areas of specialty.

During their fellowship, Ukrainian scholars are paired with an MIT faculty advisor in their field, observe research work and classes, attend lab meetings and on campus programming that may be of interest to them in their area of specialty and beyond.

Global Seed Funds

MIT-Ukraine is in the process of developing a Seed Fund to support Ukrainian scholars engaging in collaborative projects with MIT faculty. In the meantime, MIT-Ukraine collaborates with academic and research institutions in other European countries to engage Ukrainian scholars in collaborative research.

With the support from the Global Seed Funds, during the AY 2023-24, Svetlana Boriskina spearheaded two projects that foster tri-lateral collaborations between MIT, Ukrainian institutions and institutions in Poland and Czechia. The goal of these projects is to help develop resilient international research networks and provide templates for future bi-lateral MIT-Ukraine collaborations.
