National Academies advisory: May 2 Symposium on International Science Policy

Many of the issues facing the world -- such as emerging infectious diseases, global climate change, energy sources, human migration, and the problems of megacities and environmental sustainability -- are fundamentally international and do not respect national borders. Confronting these problems requires organizing the world's science, health, and technology communities to provide policy advice.

At this public symposium, which will take place during the annual meeting of the National Academy of Sciences, international leaders in science will discuss how the world's science academies can cooperate to provide such advice. A roundtable discussion on the future of international science policy will follow.

DETAILS: Monday, May 2, from 2:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. in the auditorium of the National Academies building, 2100 C St., N.W., Washington, D.C.

SPEAKERS:

  • Zhou Guanghou, president, China Association for Science and Technology, Beijing

  • Willem J. M. Levelt, president, Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences, Amsterdam; and managing director, Max Planck Institute for Psycholinguistics, Nijmegen, Netherlands

  • Robert M. May, president, Royal Society, London; and professor of zoology, University of Oxford, Oxford, United Kingdom

  • Goverdhan Mehta, former president, Indian Academy of Sciences; president-elect, International Council for Science, Paris; and professor of organic chemistry and director, Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore

  • M.S. Swaminathan, chair, M.S. Swaminathan Research Foundation, Centre for Research on Sustainable Agricultural and Rural Development, Chennai

  • Chen Zhu, vice president, Chinese Academy of Sciences, Beijing; professor and director, Shanghai Institute of Hematology, Shanghai
