The EATLP-IBFD-IFA funding initiative in favour of the Ukrainian tax law community affected by the war (deadline 30 April 2022)

March 28, 2022


As a concrete gesture of solidarity towards the Ukrainian tax colleagues, EATLP, IBFD and IFA, acting as funding institutions, are offering individual grants for up to Euro 3000/monthly. The grants will fund up to one year research projects. The total amount of each grant will depend on the length of the research project. The research projects will be conducted, under the guidance of EATLP, IBFD and IFA on topics of European and/or international tax law (also related to future initiatives of the funding institutions) either at IBFD (Amsterdam), or at a European University (including in Ukraine) indicated by the candidates, prior to the conclusion of a dedicated agreement.

The eligibility to the research grants is open to tax colleagues (Ph.D. students, postdoctoral researchers, professors of tax law, or any other member of the tax community pursuing academic research, including practitioners, judges and tax officials), whose careers have been disrupted by the war in the Ukraine.

The deadline for applications is 30 April 2022. In case of particularly good applications, the funding institutions may approve one or more grant also before that date.

Applications should be sent, with a brief resumé, motivational letter (including objectives and brief outline of the proposed research) and contact details via e-mail to Yolanda Arbon: ;

The funding institutions may post further calls, in case further financial resources become available.


As an expression of solidarity towards the Ukrainian tax community, EATLP, IBFD and IFA are coordinating a funding scheme for the members of that community (doctoral and postdoctoral researchers, professors and other academics, practitioners, judges and tax officials), whose activities have been disrupted by the war in the Ukraine. We welcome synergies with further funding entities (e.g. tax and law firms, companies, individuals, public organizations, international organisations, charities, funds, etc.) that may be interested in contributing to support this joint initiative of EATLP, IBFD and IFA for the Ukraine.

Further information for interested parties may be obtained upon request by contacting Yolanda Arbon:;
