In partnership with

Part of our Great Minds event series in partnership with CARA The Migration Museum Project’s Great Minds series, run in partnership with CARA (Council for At-Risk Academics), shines a spotlight on the immeasurable contributions of inspiring individuals who have, at some point, migrated to the UK and have shaped a particular industry, field, or the fabric of the country itself. CARA (Council for At-Risk Academics) CARA helps academics in immediate danger, those forced into exile, and many who choose to remain in their home countries despite the serious risks they face. CARA also supports higher education institutions whose continuing work is at risk or compromised. CARA has supported academics at risk and defended science and learning for over eighty years. The early work of CARA helped rescue many of the 20th century's finest academics - people like Ernst Chain, Ludwig Guttmann and Karl Popper.
