Science for Ukraine: training and work opportunities for Ukrainian nationals
CERN proposes dedicated opportunities for Ukrainian nationals to learn and work with our expert teams.
CERN was established in the aftermath of World War II to bring nations and people together for the peaceful pursuit of science: aggression and war run counter to everything that the Organization stands for.
CERN will continue to uphold its core values of scientific collaboration across borders as a driver for peace.
Diversity has been an integral part of CERN's mission since its foundation and is an established value of the Organization. See how we’re improving this further here. The international and multi-disciplinary environment makes CERN a truly unique place to work and learn.
