Academia Europaea supports Physiology Congress in Ukraine

Ukraine is one of the poorest countries in Europe (according to the official GDP/capita figures) and is furthermore engaged in a war in the eastern part of the country, defending itself against a formidable aggressor state. In spite of these challenges, scientific work of high quality continues. One of the strongest scientific societies in Ukraine, the Ukrainian Physiological Society, held its 20th Congress in Kiev at the famous Bogomoletz Institute of Physiology, from 27 – 30 May 2019, supported by Academia Europaea and UNESCO. The festive Opening Session of the Congress included colourful displays and impressive performances of Ukrainian folk songs.
