The war in Ukraine
Karolinska Institutet has raised the level of preparedness through its newly established Health Emergency and Pandemic Science Centre for providing support and help in the escalating situation in Ukraine. On this page you will find information for staff and students and resources for journalists and the public concerning Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.
Questions and answers on the war in Ukraine
The war in Ukraine is provoking outrage, horror, frustration - and many questions. Here we’ve gathered some questions and answers about the war that are of relevance to Karolinska Institutet and our students and staff. The Q&A list was compiled in mid-March 2022, but since the situation is constantly changing and developing, the relevance of some of the questions might be affected. We aim to keep the list continually updated.
Resources: researchers and experts
Researchers at Karolinska Institutet work in different ways to be available if, or when, society requests information about the war in Ukraine. Here we gather resources at KI that can contribute with knowledge in their areas. The page is under construction.
