The German Educational Research Association (GERA)

The German Educational Research Association (GERA) | Deutsche Gesellschaft für Erziehungswissenschaft (DGfE) is an association for educational researchers active in teaching and research. The association was founded in 1964 and currently has around 4.200 members. GERA aims to promote study, research and education in the area of educational theory and science. Its wide-ranging work is mainly carried out through GERA’s 14 divisions and 18 subdivisions and manifests itself in publications, meetings and a joint congress, which takes place every two years.
GERA operates the institution databank (Institutionendatenbank) in cooperation with the German Education Server (Deutscher Bildungsserver). The databank includes detailed information on institutes of education in Germany.

Support for refugee researchers

  • Deutscher Akademischer Austauschdienst | Німецька служба академічних обмінів (DAAD)
    The DAAD is the world’s largest funding organisation for cross-border academic cooperation and the international exchange of students and researchers. The DAAD would like to enable students and graduates from Ukraine to attend higher education institutions in Germany. On this page, they are providing offers of assistance from their partners as well as German and international institutes of higher education.
    DAAD хоче допомогти студентам та випускникам з України, щоб уможливити їхнє перебування у Німеччині. Ми радо інформуємо вас про пропозиції щодо підтримки від наших партнерів, а також німецьких та іноземних вишів.

  • Network for Ukrainian Scientists | Сеть для украинских ученых в Германии и Австрии
  • #ScienceForUkraine
    #ScienceForUkraine is a community group of volunteer researchers and students from academic institutions in Europe and around the world. Our mission is to support the Ukrainian academic community in surviving the Russia’s war and to help ensure the continuity of Ukraine's science and strengthen its presence in the international science arena.
  • MSCA4Ukraine-programme
    The MSCA4Ukraine-programme enables scientific and non-scientific institutions in all EU member states and Horizon Europe-associated countries to host doctoral candidates and postdocs for a period of 6 to 24 months. The programme has a budget of 25 million euros. The funding will enable researchers from Ukraine to continue their work at a scientific or non-scientific institution in an EU Member State or a Horizon Europe Associated Country, maintain links with research institutions in Ukraine and also facilitate their return once this is possible. Benefits are similar to those provided under the Marie Skłodowska Curie Actions (MSCA) Doctoral Networks and Postdoctoral Fellowships funding lines and vary according to the host country. Applications must be submitted by the host institution on behalf of the researcher. Applications are submitted online via the Humboldt Foundation's website. The first fellowships will be awarded from the end of January 2023. Applications can be submitted continuously until the funds are exhausted.
