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.

Registration is available here.

Cullen Trust Distinguished University Chair of Value-Based Care Executive Director
Professor Elizabeth Teisberg, Ph.D., is Executive Director of the Value Institute for Health and Care, the nexus of an international community working to improve health and care outcomes for each and for all. She is the co-creator of the concept of value-based health care delivery as the co-author, with Michael E. Porter, of Redefining Health Care: Creating Value-Based Competition on Results.

The Value Institute for Health and Care offers a platform for implementing transformation to high value health care. The Institute conducts translational research on implementing strategy, culture, measurement, and payment to enable high-value health care, and it supports clinical transformation efforts through qualitative research with patients, measurement design, and development of relationship-centered solutions. The Institute also works to transform health care through education, offering a Master of Science in Health Care Transformation degree, as well as executive education and customized virtual leadership rounds focused on the “how-to” of leading and implementing high-value health care.

Professor Teisberg earned her Ph.D. in engineering at Stanford University. She previously served on the faculties of Dartmouth’s School of Medicine, University of Virginia’s Darden School of Business, and Harvard Business School.
