AssistanceWar in the Middle East

Support for Students, Doctoral Candidates and Researchers

Heidelberg University condemns the terrorist attacks by Hamas on Israel in the strongest possible terms. We follow the current events in Israel and the Palestinian territories with horror and concern. We mourn the victims of this dreadful war in the Middle East with its terrible consequences. The academic community of Ruperto Carola condemns violence, terror, and hatred. Our thoughts are with all people of all backgrounds and nationalities who have lost relatives and friends, or who must fear for the lives of their loved ones.

There is a contact point at Heidelberg University for all university members who need support and assistance in this situation. Please contact:

Heidelberg University has launched a fellowship programme: the research fellowships – an initiative in the framework of the 4EU+ European University Alliance – are for doctoral candidates, postdoctoral researchers and professors from Israel and the Palestinian territories whose academic work is adversely affected by the war. They make it possible to spend one or several months on research leave in Heidelberg. Further information:
