News & Events

Solidarity with Ukraine

We are deeply saddened by the war of aggression against Ukraine and stand in solidarity with its people in their struggle for freedom and democracy. Ukrainians are studying at FHWien der WKW. Since 2014, we have been cooperating with a university in Lviv.

Our thoughts are with the people in Ukraine. Now we have to support those who need help or who are fleeing from the war.
