Good morning, it’s Kasmira, and today we’re covering the hold-up of the Ocean Viking rescue ship in Sicily, a week-long event in Geneva aimed at fostering science diplomacy, and Swiss researchers’ plea to rejoin the EU’s major research funding programme.

And, as Antonio Guterres’ second term as UN secretary general gets underway, this opinion piece asks can he make his mark and reassert the organisation’s relevance on the global stage?

⚓ Migrant rescue ship Ocean Viking blocked at Italian Port. SOS Mediterranée, the NGO that operates the vessel, said the Ocean Viking has been detained in the Sicilian port of Trapani after inspectors took issue with the registration of containers on the deck of the ship. It comes a year after the ship was allowed to set sail about being blocked at port for five months over alleged safety issues.
