WLS Visiting Fellow attends conference on 'Ukraine's Recovery'

Dr. Aisel Omarova, BA Fellow at the University of Warwick, was invited as a delegate to the conference "Ukraine’s Recovery: Rebuilding with Research", which took place earlier this week on the 15 May 2023 in London.

The conference was organised by the Royal Society and the Universities Policy Engagement Network (UPEN), together with the Fund of the President of Ukraine for Education, Science and Sports, and the Embassy of Ukraine. The event connected researchers from Ukrainian and UK universities and policy makers to put research at the forefront of the rebuilding of Ukraine in support of policymakers tackling the complex and urgent challenges related to Ukraine's reconstruction.

How research can be applied to challenges ranging from rebuilding Ukraine's economy, to addressing the complex needs related to health and wellbeing, reimaging regional security and partnerships, and planning for a green recovery were discussed. The aim of the event was to contribute to Ukraine's recovery, and produce some clear actions which participants can take forward to make a positive difference in the short and medium term using excellent research and science-informed policy making.
