Commission stops cooperation with Russia in Research and Education
Following the escalation of the Russian war of aggression against Ukraine, and in line with the sanctions taken to date, Commissioner Mariya Gabriel announced that the Commission will terminate cooperation with Russion public entities in Research and Education. The measures taken include the termination of ongoing grant agreements and subsequent payments to Russian public bodies or related organisations. This includes as well termination of participation of Russian public entities or bodies in Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA).
MSCA fellowships and European Research Council (ERC) principal investigator grants to Russian individuals will in principle remain possible, keeping a thorough screening against the EU sanctions list.
