Shortly after the Russian war of aggression began, the Robert Bosch Stiftung set up an emergency aid program for Ukraine. Now, we are continuing our support, focusing on the sustainable impact of the projects we fund. For example, we are looking at ways to ensure the lasting integration of refugees in Germany. We are also working with mediation organizations on how to rebuild civil society and foster social cohesion in Ukraine after the war. Through a new archive, we are also promoting documentation of the war by Ukrainian scientists, journalists, artists and many others. 

The following articles offer an overview of ongoing projects in Ukraine and neighboring European countries in which the Robert Bosch Stiftung supports Ukraine.
