Event Details

Science is crucial for both diagnosing and addressing societal problems. How should we address the challenges of doing science in the developing world? What challenges exist in particular contexts, and how can we ameliorate them? 

On Septemper 17 and 18, at the Balsillie School for International Affairs in Waterloo, scholars will converge to take part in panel discussions on 1) global health and development, 2) institutions and collaborations, 3) politics, numbers, and representation, and 4) agriculture and environment. There will also be a graduate student poster competition.

The keynote lecture will be by Romain Murenzi, executive director of The World Academy of Science (http://twas.org).

Registration is free, but required.

Parking is available off Father David Bauer Drive. The receptionist at the Erb Street entrance will validate parking slips.
