ACS Joins National Academy of Sciences in Protecting Ukrainian Scientists

The American Chemical Society (ACS) announced that it has made a $500,000 donation to the U.S. National Academy of Sciences (NAS), whose Engineers in Exile or Displaced (SEED) program is currently helping researchers who have been forced to flee Ukraine. SEED helps “scientists and engineers relocate and continue their work in Poland and other neighboring countries.” It is estimated that 20,000 researchers have been displaced. NAS aims to expand the program and partner with other scientific societies.

ACS’s press release states, “Under agreements with the Ukrainian and Polish academies of sciences, NAS support for researchers and their families includes providing the displaced researchers with grants and placements in appropriate research institutions for up to six months. The funding from ACS will be prioritized to assist Ukrainian chemical scientists to the extent possible.”

SEED is looking to the future, taking steps to “ensure that Ukrainian science will be better positioned to be restored after the war ends. Keeping the affected researchers engaged in their work and connected to the international science community allows the world to continue to benefit from their ideas and discoveries.”
