ISC will organise the ScienceSummit@UNGA76 around the 76th United Nations General Assembly (UNGA76)

About this event

ISC will organise the second edition of the ScienceSummit@UNGA76 around the 76th United Nations General Assembly (UNGA76) in New York in September 2021. The objective will be to raise awareness of the role and contribution of science to the attainment of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals and to demonstrate initiatives that provide models for global science mechanisms and activities in support of the SDGs, in particular in the area of science infrastructure and capacity building.

The conference will examine what enabling policy, regulatory and financial environment is needed to put in place and sustain the science mechanisms needed to support genuinely global scientific collaboration collaborations across continents, across nations and themes. This data enabled approach to science, research, and development will be necessary.

Attainment of the SDGs will be jeopardised without alignment on policy and regulation that impact science and technology. Alignment is necessary so that science data can move from country to country, for example. Without regulatory equivalency, it isn’t easy to see how the health science cooperation that needs to happen between developed and less developed nations will take place. Unless aligned disparate existing regulatory frameworks are and will continue to be a barrier: a barrier to innovation; a barrier to technology transfer; a barrier that will impede progress in addressing health deprivation and other challenges. This applies to diagnostics, therapy development and healthcare delivery. ICT technologies and health research are intertwined.

The proceedings at UNGA76 will build on the G-7 process, the G 20 process, and anticipate COP27 and the EU-Africa Summit early in 2022. The meeting will also be run in tandem with the UN summit on Food Supply Systems. ISC will undertake the organisation in close cooperation with a number of UN agencies and bodies.
