Stronger integration and dialogue between science and society for the SDGs

More than 70 high-level decision makers, scientists, NGO and funding agency representatives gathered to celebrate 20 years of KFPE Guidelines at the conference “Leveraging Research Partnerships for Global Challenges”. A series of talks presented in three separate sessions addressed the following topics: (i) new roles and tasks of science in general and research partnerships in particular; (ii) regional adaptation of scientific systems; and (iii) how science policies and funding systems can support transformative research. Participants were left with one clear conclusion at the end of the 22 November meeting: stronger integration and dialogue between science and society, including policy and business, is essential if we are to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals.

Sustainability goals cannot be reached without North-South cooperation

Switzerland's foreign policy should pay more attention to research on global change in order to meet the 17 Sustainable Development Goals of the 2030 Agenda, says the Commission for Research Partnerships with Developing Countries (KFPE) of the Academy of Science. Owing to many years of experience in North-South research, Switzerland is ideally placed to promote the development of research skills in the Global South and thus to help foster change on the ground.
