2nd Ukraine Conference Report Published

Over three days in March 2023, ALLEA and the ISC hosted a second conference on the Ukraine crisis, ‘One year of war in Ukraine: Exploring the Impact on the Science Sector and Supporting Initiatives’. 

Held one year after the start of the full-scale assault on Ukraine, the conference and corresponding report sought to engage with the insights and recommendations that emerged from the previous conference held in June 2022. The aim was also to place them in the broader context of how and why the international science system and research community can show solidarity in times of crisis. The conference report affirms the validity of the recommendations of the June 2022 conference, and underlines considerations based on the worsening situation in Ukraine.

The online conference brought together over 530 participants from around the world with sessions hosted by Science Europe, National Research Foundation of Ukraine, The Council of Young Scientists, and the Ministry of Education and Science for Ukraine. The three-day event mobilised the scientific community to evaluate the protection and support efforts implemented during the past year while assessing further steps toward enhanced support and post-conflict reconstruction.
