The HROMADA network consists of researchers based at universities, research institutions, and think tanks in the Baltic and Nordic countries with specific expertise on Ukraine. SSE Riga is represented by professors Kata Fredheim, Arnis Sauka, and Zane Varpina.

"Hromada" is the Ukrainian word for "community." The conference aims to kickstart a dialogue with decision-makers and business representatives on how the expertise of researchers can contribute to the rebuilding efforts of public and private actors from the Nordic and Baltic states. HROMADA is supported by NordForsk.
