ISP #IYBSSD2022 WEBINARS
Through its International Science Programme (ISP), Uppsala University launched officially a serie of webinars for the International Year of Basic Sciences for Sustainable Development (IYBSSD).
The IYBBSD 2022 will show the ways in which curiosity-driven research is vital to ensure good health for all, to overcome hunger, to fight climate change, to preserve terrestrial and marine biodiversity, but also to increase world peace and fight inequalities.
IYBSSD2022 puts the spotlight on the basic sciences, and since ISP focuses on the basic sciences, it is easy to understand that ISP strongly supports this event.
ISP arranged scientific webinars IYBSSD2022 during 2022. The scientific webinars will take place officially from 18/01 until 14/06/2002.
