#StandWithUkraine: Statement of the TIB Director on the war in Ukraine

TIB shows solidarity with Ukraine, offers help to Ukrainian researchers and stops all cooperation with Russian partners

The Director of TIB – Leibniz Information Centre for Science and Technology, Prof. Dr. Sören Auer, is shocked by the war in Ukraine: “Personally and as director of TIB I deeply condemn the war started by Russia against its peaceful, democratic neighbour Ukraine. As TIB we will stop all collaborations with Russia partners. Ukrainian researchers and members of the library community we will happily provide shelter as guest researchers at TIB.”

TIB offers a grant programme for librarians and scientists for fugitives from Ukraine and is working together with Leibniz Universität Hannover and the Leibniz Association on other programmes to support them.
