TOP STORY  Thousands of scientists and science students have fled wars in recent years, and have arrived in neighbouring countries or distant countries hoping for a safe place to resume their work. How should their new countries respond? At an event organised by the University of Trieste (Italy) and TWAS, local researchers acknowledged many effective programmes. But the support is uneven and fragmented, they said.

The TWAS film "Science in Exile" was screened at the event.  More
