NASEM-IIASA Webinar 3 of 3: Science Diplomacy
Sep 28, 2020, 1:00 - 2:30 PM
Science, engineering, and medicine perform an important role in meeting sustainability challenges on global, regional and local scales. They advance the scientific understanding of the needs involved, and inform public understanding and policy decisions. The United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) identify a way to achieve a better and more sustainable future. The 3-part webinar series, Sustainability and the SDGs: Promoting a Dynamic Science-Policy Interface, cohosted by the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine (NASEM) and the International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis (IIASA), explores this theme from three perspectives.
Science Diplomacy will be moderated by Vaughan Turekian, Executive Director, Policy and Global Affairs at the NASEM. The speakers are Frances Colon, President of Jasperi Consulting, and Jan Marco Miller, Science Advisor, European External Action Service.
