“Preparing Greek Academic Institutes to host Scholars at Risk” February 8th, 13.00-14.15 EET

The Inspireurope webinar “Preparing Greek Academic Institutes to host Scholars at Risk” is addressed to administrative staff of Greek Universities, as well as interested academics. It aims to raise their awareness and preparedness on hosting Scholars at Risk with possible funding solutions, as well as proposed administrative answers for any difficulties in the process. The support of European HEIs including those in Greece is even more needed after the recent threats to Academic freedom in Afghanistan.
