The Coimbra Group Office is compiling initiatives taken by its member universities to support those affected by the invasion of Ukraine, more particularly students, researchers and staff. The table below also lists relevant statements and resources from our members.

At the bottom of the page, relevant activities developed by other organisations that could be useful to the academic community are also listed.

We are in contact with the Coimbra Group Representatives and will regularly update this page.
