- Being able to help a researcher from Ukraine during this situation feels great and it's good to see that so many colleagues are committed to making this happen, says Malin Hillman, international coordinator at the University of Gävle.

Earlier this year, the University with rector Ylva Fältholm made a statement in favor of Ukraine. During this autumn semester a researcher from Ukraine will be employed through the international organization Scholars at Risk. She is a researcher in educational science and has come to Sweden together with her son. Scholars at Risk is an international organization that supports scholars who, for various reasons, are at risk in their home countries.
