Challenges and resilience: The state of physics research in Ukraine during times of instability
The state of science in Ukraine has been quite tumultuous in recent years. Despite a strong scientific tradition and a highly educated population, political instability, economic challenges and the ongoing hostilities have made it difficult for Ukrainian scientists to thrive. Physics research has the potential to address some of the world’s most pressing challenges, such as climate change, energy production and healthcare. And the field of physics in Ukraine has been hit particularly hard.
