The war in Ukraine is posing serious threat to researchers, academics and students. Most of
them had to cease their academic activities, university studies included, while many had to
flee their country. The Central European section of the International Union for the Study of
Social Insects (IUSSI) has many ties to academia in Ukraine and hopes to support our
colleagues by coordinating the provision of support, to enable social insect scholars
(including students) impacted by the war in Ukraine to continue their lives, work, and
careers to the best of their ability under these terrible circumstances. Employment
possibilities in research and academia, accommodation, access to research facilities,
supervisory support for students, and even access to specific courses in social evolution,
social behaviour, social insects are all means to help scholars and students interested in
social insects.
