TWAS is organizing a workshop on /Scientific Refugees: Transnational
Resources, /to be held on 13-17 March in Trieste.
The workshop will focus on the current refugee crisis but from the
perspective of the scientists, engineers, medical doctors and science
students among the millions of refugees who have fled conflict in
countries, such as Palestine, Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya and Yemen
in recent years, as well as the scenarios in countries that have emerged
from periods of war/civil unrest .
The event aim to develop a series of recommendations on scientific
refugees that can be of value to policymakers, research centres,
educational institutions and refugee resettlement organisations.
The meeting is by invitation only but space is reserved for a number of
locally based scientists who have personal experiences in this area that
they may like to share.
If interested, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org (attn: Dr. Peter
