World Science Forum 2015
The 2015 World Science Forum (WSF) is organized under the theme ‘the enabling power of science’, to examine and highlight the many ways in which science improves quality of life for the benefit and advancement of society.
In keeping with previous years, the WSF programme will explore relevant topics linked to the theme and provide a platform for improved dialogue and collaboration between the scientific community, private sector, government and civil society. It also provides opportunities for young scientists and researchers to lead and participate in debates.
Organized every 2 years, the forum is one of the world’s major science events. It brings together over 600 scientists and provides linkages between scientists, industry and policy makers. The 2015 World Science Forum is organized by UNESCO, the Hungarian Academy of Sciences, the International Council for Science (ICSU), the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), The World Academy of Sciences (TWAS) and European Academies Science Advisory Council (EASAC). This is the 7th edition of the World Science Forum. The previous WSF took place in Rio de Janeiro in November 2013.
