The International Human Frontier Science Program Organization (HFSP) will host an international effort to build bridges between basic life science and environmental science communities at academic, policy and funding levels with the aim of discussing how basic research in the life sciences can help accelerate the sustainability transition. HFSP is presenting these events in partnership with the Ministry of Higher Education and Research of France, the Agence National de Recherche, the Académie des Sciences, the Institut Pasteur, the International Science Council and the IYBSSD.
Two events – High-Level Science Summit & International Scientific Symposium
HFSP and its partners will offer two free events in Paris spanning three days from 27-29 June 2023. The umbrella title for the combined events is: “Fundamental Life Science meets Climate, Environment and Sustainability: new bridges, new partnerships, new opportunities.”
High-level Science Summit: The first event will be held on 27 June 2023 and will be a high-level Science Summit, HFSP’s contribution to the U.N. International Year of Basic Science for Sustainable Development (IYBSSD). The Summit will be held on 27 June 2023 and will draw high level ministerial representatives, science policy leaders, leaders of science funding agencies, and others in the global scientific enterprise addressing the point of how to manage science programs to accelerate and facilitate the sustainability transition.
International Scientific Symposium: The second event will follow on 28 & 29 June 2023 and will be an international Science Symposium featuring scientists from around the world talking about cutting-edge science across the fields of life science, environmental science and sustainability.
