The "Friedrich List" Faculty of Transport and Traffic Sciences of TU Dresden is deeply shocked and affected by Russia's attack on Ukraine and the war events of the past days. We condemn this attack in the strongest possible terms.

At our faculty, too, people whose country of birth and home is Ukraine are researching, working and studying. Together with them, we are very concerned about their relatives and friends. Our thoughts and solidarity are with them and with the entire Ukrainian population affected by the war. We declare our solidarity with the citizens of Ukraine and stand up for peaceful coexistence and for the freedom of science, research and teaching.

Support offered by the TU Dresden

The TU Dresden (TUD) is working hard to enable its Ukrainian students and academics to continue their studies and research in Dresden. Through the "we-care" contact point and the International Office, the TU Dresden offers support in visa matters and support during their studies. In addition, the TUD is involved in the Scholars at Risk network to enable at-risk academics to stay at the TU Dresden.

For affected students who need psychological support, the psychosocial counselling centre of the Studentenwerk is a helpful contact point.
