Science in Exile mapping survey

The results of the survey will be used to populate a searchable database on the new Science in Exile website - a useful tool both for scientists seeking support and protection, and organizations looking to create partnerships

The Science in Exile initiative aims to create a network of like-minded organizations that will work together to develop a platform and roll out a coordinated advocacy campaign, so as to foster a cohesive response for the support and integration of refugee, displaced and at-risk scientists.

The Science in Exile mapping survey targets organizations, institutions, universities, diaspora groups, government bodies and donors that provide support to at-risk, displaced and refugee scientists. If you represent these entities, we invite you to complete this survey.

The objective is to identify and map programmes and opportunities globally that support at-risk, displaced and refugee scientists.

The results of this survey will populate a searchable database on the Science in Exile website. Participants in the initiative have identified such a central resource as one of the gaps for at-risk, displaced and refugee scholars and scientists seeking information and opportunities. Moving forward, the aim us to regularly update the database (e.g. when new scholarship opportunities become available). As well as being a useful tool for scientists seeking support and protection, the database will serve as a resource for organizations seeking to create partnerships.

This survey will take approximately 30 minutes to complete and requires specific details about your organization's programme(s)/activity(ies). At this time, the form does not allow for saving answers as you go along, but you can click through it in advance in order to gather the relevant information in preparation to complete the form.
We invite you to be as comprehensive and detailed as possible in your replies, as these will be published on the searchable database.

The deadline for the survey is 31 July 2021, you can find it here.

We thank you for your time and look forward to receiving your submission. For queries, please contact displacedscientists@twas.org.

The initiative is a collaboration between The World Academy of Sciences for the advancement of science in developing countries (UNESCO-TWAS), the International Science Council (ISC) and the InterAcademy Partnership (IAP), under the umbrella of Science International.
