Refugee Scientists: transnational resources - 13-17 march 2017, Trieste

From 13-17 March, OGS co-organise with TWAS and EMUNI an international workshop to explore issues related to refugee scientists.

The workshop is among the first ever to assemble leaders from North and South to discuss the adversities faced by refugee scientists and what can be done to assist them.

OGS President Maria Cristina Pedicchio said it is "extremely important" to help refugee researchers find appropriate work. “We believe that their skills and experience should not be lost and we strongly encourage them to struggle and overcome all obstacles and to preserve their scientific knowledge, both for their careers and for the benefit of their new home countries," she said. "It is also important to raise public awareness on the plight of refugee scientists and create all necessary conditions to support their integration."
