New ISC Report "Unleashing Science: Delivering Missions for Sustainability"

Unleashing Science: Delivering Missions for Sustainability
by International Science Council, 2021. Paris, France. International Science Council. DOI: 10.24948/2021.04.

About this Report: We need to urgently redouble efforts to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals. Business-as-usual approaches – to science and science funding – are no longer appropriate to this massively complex and urgent challenge. Effective action will require broad and bold engagement, and commitment, from science funders, but also from the decision makers and influencers in governments, in the private sector and in civil society. The international funding community is ready for the challenge and has requested the International Science Council to lead on the development of a process to convene the necessary voices, jointly designing the way forward This report is an input into that process It is intended as a strawman, to disrupt our thinking and to inspire ambitious and achievable outcomes. Let's begin.
  • Explore a roadmap of how science, along with science funders, policy-makers, civil society & the private sector can accelerate its impact towards achieving the SDGs by 2030.
  • ISC calls for redoubled efforts in critical science systems.
  • "We must collectively take a much more holistic approach that has intent, focus, energy and urgency. It is time to think and act differently in science."
