Science and the Sustainable Development Goals: The role of academies

The InterAcademy Partnership, in collaboration with the Korean Academy of Science and Technology, will host a conference "Science and the Sustainable Development Goals: The role of academies" 9-10 April 2019 in Songdo, Korea.

The conference will explore how science is required to underpin and advance progress towards achieving the 17 goals of the UN 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda, and in particular, what role academies can – and should – play towards achieving these goals.

Among the specific sessions identified by the conference Scientific Committee, there will be discussions on the role of academies in the 21st Century and how academies have been, and should continue to evolve, to respond to today’s challenges. There will also be more specific sessions on artificial intelligence and food and nutrition security and agriculture.

Participants include distinguished scholars, presidents and leadership of national academies of science, medicine, engineering, as well as experts and health advisors from both industrialized and low and middle income countries (LMIC).
