Science Summit at UNGA77 - September 2022

About this event


ISC will organise the 8th edition of the UNGA77 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 central theme of this conference. The objective is to develop and launch science collaboration to demonstrate global science mechanisms and activities to support the attainment of the UN SDGs, Agenda 2030 and Local203o.

A central theme of the UNGA77 Science Summit will be inclusiveness: a range of discussions will explore how scientific excellence can be pursued based on inclusiveness at the global level.

Another theme will be exploring at the science system works: policies, regulation and funding for science stem from deep in the last century. The pandemic provides a chance to rethink and co-design a new system for science for a new set of urgent challenges. The UN system is hampered by its inability to legislate - that’s the preserve of member states: on the other hand, states working alone trying to legislate for global challenges is something King Canute might be familiar with. A redesign of the global science system is urgent.

Science infrastructures and digital research capacity building are crucial to enable scientists to collaborate at an international level to create opportunities for wide-ranging initiatives that can produce innovations to respond to challenges in health, climate, environment, energy, agriculture and food, amongst other things.
