The International Science Council and its partners will organise the 9th edition of the Science Summit around the 78th United Nations General Assembly (UNGA78) on 12-29 September 2023.
The role and contribution of science to attaining the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) will be the central theme of the Summit. The objective is to develop and launch science collaborations to demonstrate global science mechanisms and activities to support the attainment of the UN SDGs, Agenda 2030 and Local2030. The meeting will also prepare input for the United Nations, which will take place during UNGA79 beginning on 12 September 2024.
The Summit will examine what enabling policy, regulatory and financial environments are needed to implement and sustain the science mechanisms required to support genuinely global scientific collaborations across continents, nations and themes. Scientific discovery through the analysis of massive data sets is at hand. This data-enabled approach to science, research and development will be necessary if the SDGs are to be achieved.
For the first time, the Science Summit at the United Nations General Assembly will examine how equitable access to big science institutions can accelerate the progress of the UN’s sustainable goals such as tackling poverty and hunger.
The Science Summit will begin with a Digital Science Plenary on 12-13 September 2023 with Thematic Sessions planned until the end of the Summit on the 29th.
Suzanne Dumouchel, Head of International Coordination at CNRS and member of the Board of Directors of EOSC-A, will give two presentations there on September 20th and 21st respectively.
1) Wednesday, September 20, 11:00am EDT
2) Thursday, September 21, 9:00am EDT
