BRiDGE project – Bridge for Researchers in Danger Going to Europe

BRiDGE (Bridge for Researchers in Danger Going to Europe) is a project funded under the Horizon 2020 call SwafS-26-2017: Science4Refugees-Support to highly skilled refugee scientists. BRiDGE is a two year project that started on April 1st, 2018. From South East Europe to its heart, BRiDGE gives an all-in-one solution for the localized guidance of refugee researchers (RRs) in the European Research Area (ERA) and enables the 40 EURAXESS country members in the ERA to identify and utilize the potential of RRs across Europe.

Support of 220 RRs focus on early and late stage post doc researchers and professors of all ages, especially those displaced in Germany, Switzerland, Bulgaria, Greece, and Turkey. Priority will be given further to researchers with an asylum related status. The measures are nevertheless open also to researchers without asylum, such as threatened scholars, if capacity is given.

You can find more about BRiDGE and further information for refugee researchers, such as the experts´ and projects´pool in the new newsletter for refugee researchers, accessible here.
