Prisma Ukraïna - Research Network Eastern Europe is a research program at the Forum Transregionale Studien that opens up new regional and transregional perspectives on and from the East of Europe through the prism of Ukraine. Initiated in 2015 and directed by Andrii Portnov, Prisma Ukraïna provides scope for academic research, transregional exchange and communication through fellowships, workshops, panel discussions, seminars, lectures and science communication.

Prisma Ukraïna: War, Migration, Memory is an interdisciplinary research group of Ukrainian scholars in Ukraine and Germany that has been constituted in 2022 under the direction of Viktoria Sereda. The research group investigates the transformational effects of war and dislocation on people’s memory, history, and sense of belonging. The complementary project Prisma Ukraïna Science Communication and Networks offers research-related, participatory and multilingual communication on Ukraine-related topics. It facilitates decentralized forms of academic cooperation.

Prisma Ukraïna - Research Network Eastern Europe, the research group War, Migration, Memory and the complementary project “Science Communication and Networks” have been realized with funding from the Land Berlin and based on an idea by Viktoriya Sereda. The ZEIT Stiftung Ebelin und Gerd Bucerius and the Marga and Kurt Möllgaard Foundation provide funding for sur-place or non-resident fellowships for scientists in Ukraine affected by the war. In the second phase of the project, the Gerda Henkel Foundation supports the research group with individual stipends and additional funds for workshops and project-accompanying science communication.
