Welcome to the Science Summit at UNGA76, a major contribution to advancing Science for the UN SDGs. Online from 14- September - 5 October 2021.
ISC will organise the second edition of the UNGA76 Science Summit around the 76th United Nations General Assembly (SSUNGA76) in September 2021. The objective of the virtual meeting will be to raise awareness of the role and contribution of science to the attainment of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. It will demonstrate initiatives that provide models for global science mechanisms and activities in support of the SDGs, particularly in science infrastructure and capacity building. Science is and will enable sustainable economic, environmental, and societal development. Science is more than a funding prioritisation exercise: science is impacting all areas of policy-making and is playing a more critical role in how policy objectives are achieved and the consequent benefit to people everywhere, including responses to global challenges.
Engagement with policy leadership is more important than ever: UNGA76 is a unique forum for science to demonstrate how policy and political leadership can benefit from innovation. Central to this is the role of nonstate actors and the multilateral fora, which increasingly determine how priorities are set. Science needs to be part of this dialogue and inform outputs through thought leadership, evidence, insights, analysis, and innovation.

Nneka Onyejepu is a Research Scientist and European & Developing Countries Clinical Trials Partnership (EDCTP) Fellow with the Nigerian Institute of Medical Research (NIMR), Lagos. She holds a doctorate degree in cell biology and genetics from the University of Lagos, Nigeria. She started a Clinical Trial Unit in her Institute this current year as a major outcome of her EDCTP Fellowship. The Unit offers training and mentorship support on clinical trial/research to research scientists. Her research interest is on clinical research, molecular transmission dynamics of infectious diseases (tuberculosis and HIV) and how the environment impacts their incidence. She has collaborated with both national and international organizations to provide insight into the genetic diversity of TB and the implications of such diversity in disease epidemiology particularly drug resistant TB. She wants her research experience and engagement with communities in health research to drive rigorous quality assured data management that will impact policy directions and development by government or communities
