Ideally, academia should be an open world where exchange of knowledge happens at all times and at all places, where researchers collaborate generating data and answering scientific questions. Conflicts and war within and between countries are unfortunately still a reality in 2023. This has serious impacts on the mobility and the collaboration pacts for scientists.
As part of the Ghent University Diversity & Inclusion Month in March 2023, the Faculty of Sciences Diversity Team and Biology students are hosting an event on the impact of war on science and researchers.
