UNITAR and CERN Engagement to Imbed Science and Technology into the Multilateral Diplomatic EnvironmentPublic Lecture

Date and Time: Thursday 27 July 2017; 6:00-8:00 p.m.
Venue: Room S4, Building S, Palais des Nations, the United Nations Office at Geneva


Science is often not adequately accounted for in the main societal discussions and in the related decisions and strategies. Diplomats and policy makers may profit from a better knowledge of the world of science and its operational models, which in some cases may inspire policies and solutions also in fields other than science.

This public lecture is part of a UNITAR-CERN joint initiative addressed to the actors of multilateral diplomacy. The presentation will highlight the strategy developed by CERN in the recent years to become an active contributor to the multilateral dialogue. Remarkable achievements such as CERN's input to the definition and implementation of the UN 2030 Agenda for sustainable development and CERN's past and present contribution to peace will be discussed.

The lecture will be followed by an interactive dialogue with the audience.

Speaker: Dr. Maurizio Bona, currently is Senior Advisor for relations with Parliaments and Science for policy at CERN, as well as Senior Advisor on knowledge transfer.
