Statement on the war in Ukraine

The L3S Board of Directors is stunned and deeply shocked by the attack on Ukraine.

We are closely connected with Kharkiv National University of Radioelectronics (KNURE) through our project “Digital Education and Artificial Intelligence” and are very concerned about our partners there.

Cooperation between the two universities began in 2005 and has continued steadily in various fields since then. Since 2014, the L3S Research Center in particular has maintained close ties with Kharkiv within the framework of the ERASMUS+ program. Since the beginning of the cooperation, every year two to three students from KNURE have completed an internship of several months at L3S. They have attended lectures and actively participated in research projects at L3S. Ten of these Ukrainian students wrote their final theses in this context.

Our full solidarity and sympathy goes to the people in the area as well as to our Ukrainian staff and students.
