We are pleased to invite you to participate in an online roundtable on the theme of “Science for and with Society in dealing with COVID-19” on the occasion of celebrating the World Science Day for Peace and Development 2020.
The World Science Day for Peace and Development is proclaimed by UNESCO in 2001 and celebrated each year on 10 November to raise awareness of the important role of science for peaceful and sustainable societies and to highlight the need to engage the wider public in debates on emerging scientific issues.
This year, at a time when the world is struggling with the global COVID-19 pandemic, the focus of the World Science Day is on Science for and with Society in dealing with Covid-19. The event will include a Keynote speech by Prof. Edith Heard, 2020 L’Oréal-UNESCO For Women in Science Laureate for Europe, and Director-General of the European Molecular Biology Laboratory, as well as a moderated roundtable dialog, and an open Q&A session. Please find the detailed information in the attached leaflet.
The event will be held on the Zoom platform in English and French. To participate, please register here.
