The Warsaw Society of Biotechnology “Symbioza” proudly stands in solidarity with our Ukrainian counterparts in light of the human rights violations and unjustified Russian aggression they have faced. The Organizing Committee of the Symposium is committed to actively supporting the researchers and students from Ukraine, and we are pleased to announce a special initiative to demonstrate our solidarity.

In recognition of the challenges faced by the Ukrainian society, including researchers, we declare that remote participants with Ukrainian affiliations are exempt from the conference fee. This exemption serves as a symbolic gesture, demonstrating our support and ensuring that our Ukrainian colleagues have equal opportunities to participate and contribute to the symposium. As we gather at the symposium to celebrate advancements and innovation in biotechnology, we remain mindful of the challenges faced by our colleagues in Ukraine. Through this small gesture and ongoing efforts, we strive to strengthen the bond between our two nations, promoti- ng academic and cultural exchange while standing together in the face of adversity.

We believe that together we can build a brighter future founded on cooperation and symbiosis.
