Cure will host the 2024 Science Summit United Nations General Assembly (SSUNGA) and bring together thought leaders, scientists, technologists, innovators, policymakers, financiers, philanthropists and community leaders and journalists to increase collaborations across a broad spectrum of themes including health, nutrition, agriculture, the environment and climate. This week-long program focuses on how science and innovation contribute to the UN Sustainable Development Goals.

United Nations's Mission

ISC and its partners will organise the 9th edition of the Science Summit around the 79th United Nations General Assembly (UNGA79) on 10-27 September 2024. The role and contribution of science in attaining the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) will be the central theme of the Science Summit. The objective is to enable science collaborations to demonstrate how science supports the attainment of the UN SDGs and Agenda 2030. The meeting will also prepare input for the United Nations Summit of the Future, which will take place during UNGA79 on 16-17 September 2024. The Summit will examine what enabling policy, regulatory and financial environments are needed to implement and sustain the science mechanisms required to support genuinely global scientific collaborations across continents, nations and themes. Scientific discovery through the analysis of massive data sets is at hand. This data-enabled approach to science, research and development will be necessary if the SDGs are to be achieved.
