The concept of the platform was refined through discussions at various events, including “Ukrainian Scientific Diaspora: connecting scholars for the future,” which concluded the conference “One year of war in Ukraine, exploring the impact on the science sector and supporting initiatives,” organized by the International Science Council (ISC) and All European Academies (ALLEA).
