On October 17-18,  SAR will take part in the launch of the ‘Academic Refuge’ project at the University of Oslo, Norway.

The three-year project is a partnership between the University of Oslo, the Scholars at Risk Network, UNICA, and the University of Ljubljana, funded by the European Commission under Erasmus+ Strategic partnerships Key Action 2, and managed by the Norwegian Centre for International Cooperation in Education (SIU). The project aims to (1) improve the capacity of European universities to support refugees and threatened academics and (2) promote greater protection for academic freedom and related higher education values.
