Please submit your Proposal for a Session at Science Summit at the United Nation General Assembly (UNGA 77) 13- 30 September 2022 (hybrid format)
SUBMISSION DEADLINE: 31st JULY 2022
You can propose a session in which you will act as the convenor; or you can propose yourself as a speaker. As convener you will organise the session by proposing the abstract and adding the different speakers that will participate in that session. Where you propose yourself as speaker, the data for the convener and the speaker are the same.
By way of guidance, please consider the following:
– Typically, sessions should be designed to last 2h30m, but we apply a lot of flexibility to this timeframe. So please indicate what timeframe you require.
– All sessions should be gender balanced and inclusive. Inclusive can mean many things: in this context it means trying to include at least one speaker from each inhabited continent. We, as organisers are happy to support you in this objective.
– In terms of themes and topics: the broad summit objective will be to advance awareness of the contribution of science and innovation to the SDG agenda. You may wish to focus on a specific DG or a horizontal aspect of the SDGs, such as enabling partnerships.
– The organisers will support sessions on all aspects of physical and natural sciences. We also support sessions on related themes and topics including financing science and research, the impact of data protection and other regulations, frugal innovation, the contribution of women in science and in particular the inclusion of women in science policymaking, showcasing leadership from emerging economies, amongst other themes.
