This report includes seven key recommendations for the international community to better support science systems affected by conflict.
On 15 June 2022 the ISC and partners – All European Academies (ALLEA), Kristiania University College, and Science for Ukraine – co-hosted the ‘Conference on the Ukraine Crisis: Responses from the European Higher Education and Research Sectors’.
The report of the conference, which was published on 31 August 2022, includes important lessons and recommendations on how to support the science sector in Ukraine and in other countries affected by conflict and disaster.
The conference brought together over 150 stakeholders from across Europe, with over half of them from Ukraine, including the Minister of Education and Science for Ukraine, the Honourable Serhiy Shkarlet. Participants reflected on the assistance provided to date for academics, scientists, researchers and students who are at-risk, displaced or refugees as a result of the war in Ukraine, and put forward recommendations for mid- to long-term support, including the rebuilding of the higher education and research sectors after conflict.
