World Science Forum 2019

CALL FOR PROPOSALS: "Science, Ethics and Responsibility" (deadline 10 April).

20-23 November, 2019 | Budapest, Hungary

The 2019 World Science Forum invites proposals for thematic sessions from scientific organizations.

Under the main theme of “Science, Ethics and Responsibility” the Forum will revisit one of the topics that was fundamental to the creation of the series of fora and has only gained relevance since then.

The transformative technological developments of the last twenty years, growing demands for the accountability of research expenditures and the spread of opinions challenging scientific evidence have only reinforced the need for the responsible and ethical use of scientific knowledge.

The event will provide an opportunity for the considerations of scientists, policy-makers, society, industry and science communicators to be challenged from an ethical standpoint in the plenary sessions, and will also allow for more technical debates over issues of science in thematic sessions.

The deadline for submission of session proposals is 10 April 2019.

For more information and to propose a session, visit the Forums website.
