UNGA76 Science Summit

14 September - 30 September 2021

ISC will organise the second edition of the UNGA76 Science Summit around the 76th United Nations General Assembly (UNGA76) in New York in September 2020. The objective of the virtual meeting will be to raise awareness of the role and contribution of science to the attainment of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. It will demonstrate initiatives that provide models for global science mechanisms and activities in support of the SDGs, particularly in science infrastructure and capacity building. Science is and will enable sustainable economic, environmental, and societal development. Science is more than a funding prioritisation exercise: science is impacting all areas of policy-making and is playing a more critical role in how policy objectives are achieved and the consequent benefit to people everywhere, including responses to global challenges.

Engagement with policy leadership is more important than ever: UNGA76 is a unique forum for science to demonstrate how policy and political leadership can benefit from innovation. Central to this is the role of nonstate actors and the multilateral fora, which increasingly determine how priorities are set. Science needs to be part of this dialogue and inform outputs through thought leadership, evidence, insights, analysis, and innovation.

We can only tackle the greatest challenges that we face and will face over coming decades – such as climate change, pandemics and biodiversity loss – through transparent, open and agile research collaboration. We must bring the widest possible range of resources, expertise and perspectives to bear on solutions which will benefit people across the globe.

G7 Research Compact, Cornwall, June 2021

The UNGA76 Science Summit will examine the enabling policy, regulatory and financial environment needed to establish and sustain the science mechanisms and capscities required to genuinely support global scientific collaboration between continents, across nations and over many science themes.

Achieving the SDGs targets requires alignment at the global level on policy and regulation that impact science and technology. Alignment is necessary to ensure access to date and the resulting innovation. It is also required to enable the rapid sharing of data, the fair use of data and related benefit sharing for all, including developing nations.
