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.

I strive to support a global transition towards sustainable production and consumption patterns as I want to bring a meaningful contribution to contemporary societal challenges. Holding education as a key factor for enabling this transition, my technical interest fields are Circular Economy, Digitalization, Entrepreneurship, Innovation and Sustainable Manufacturing. I am passionate in sharing point of views and building bridges between various stakeholders coming from different social and cultural backgrounds to overcome complex challenges and align towards a common objective. My experience portfolio encompasses a manifold of perspectives and environments which I believe grants me an objective understanding of the requirements to engineer universal and collaborative approaches to effective and efficient solutions.
