Call for session proposals: Science Summit at United Nations General Assembly (UNGA77 – 13-30 September 2022
ISC Intelligence in Science and partners will convene the 8th edition of the UNGA Science Summit around the 77th United Nations General Assembly (SSUNGA77) on 13-30 September 2022.
The role and contribution of science to attaining the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) will be the Summit’s central theme. The main objective will be to raise awareness of the role and contribution of science and innovation to attaining the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). In addition, the Summit will promote a more inclusive approach to science globally to ensure that the pursuit of scientific excellence involves and provides benefits to many more stakeholders. The Summit will take place both physically in New York and online.
SSUNGA77 will examine what enabling policy, regulatory and financial environments are needed to put in place 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.
SSUNGA77 builds on the successful Science Summit at UNGA76. Two hundred and thirty sessions and approx eight hundred speakers (as of 14 May 2022). The Summit will bring together thought leaders, scientists, technologists, innovators, policymakers, decision-makers, regulators, financiers, philanthropists, editors, and community leaders to increase inclusive science and citizen collaborations. Themes include health, biological and medical sciences, ICT, food, nutrition, agriculture, the environment, materials, and clean water, amongst many others.
