Conference of Directors of Lithuanian State Research Institutes expresses support for Ukraine
As Russia wages widespread military aggression against Ukraine, the Conference of Directors of Lithuanian State Research Institutes unanimously expresses its solidarity with the independent state of Ukraine and its people, who are today fighting for the freedom of us all.
Aggressor troops are attacking Ukrainian cities; civilians, homes, kindergartens, schools and universities are being shelled. These actions are totally unacceptable in the 21st century and put the whole world at risk.
On behalf of all 11 Lithuanian research institute communities, we condemn the violence and aggression that puts thousands of our colleagues across Ukraine at risk. We express our support and encouragement to all the Ukrainian people and research community and will help as much as we can in this difficult time.
New international collaboration trend at Nature Research Centre
International relationships between scientific communities and joint projects for implementation of new ideas accelerate progress in contemporary science. As nature mostly ignores boundaries drawn by people, such forms of activity are particularly important for researchers of nature. Nature Research Centre has started this year with an event which will hopefully open new possibilities for the centre's researchers and significantly contribute to the centre's integration in global science.
