BAYHOST expresses solidarity with its partner organizations in science and higher education, grant holders and alumni from Ukraine and condems the Russian attack against Ukraine.
The attack against Ukraine damages the fruitful and friendly cooperation with partner organizations both in Ukraine and Russia that has been growing for many years.
Our thoughts are with the Ukrainian scientists, students, alumni and their families.
BAYHOST will support students exchange and academic cooperation with Ukraine even more strongly in the future.
