Organised by the Royal Society and the National Research Foundation, Prime Minister's office, Singapore, the Commonwealth Science Conference 2017 will take place on 13-16 June 2017 in Singapore.
It will bring together 450 scientists at different career stages and from 40 different states to celebrate excellence in science across the Commonwealth. The Conference aims to inspire young scientists, provide opportunities for cooperation between researchers, build understanding about policy issues of common interest and encourage scientific capacity building in Commonwealth countries.
The programme includes talks from some of the most eminent scientists from across the Commonwealth and discusses common challenges including infectious diseases, the future of the ocean, towards low carbon energy and sustainable cities. There are talks on emerging new technologies and the implications for policy.
The Conference also aims to inspire delegates to continue to think about and develop research to address issues raised and there are a range of funding options available to facilitate this.
The last Commonwealth Science Conference took place in Bangalore in November 2014.
The Commonwealth Science Conference is being supported by The Queen Elizabeth Diamond Jubilee Trust.
