The G7 of Scientific Academies: meetings and role

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

The Academies of Sciences of G7 countries have an important responsibility in identifying challenges for research and in promoting efficient institutional frameworks to deliver technological solutions for sustainable and inclusive growth. We reaffirm that science is an international endeavor and a collaborative enterprise. The role of Academies as guardians of the values of free inquiry and of the paramount importance of scientific evidence is more critical than ever. In advising governments on policy, the Academies should take a holistic approach to the problems of sustainable development that enables interdisciplinary research involving the natural, social and human sciences. The Academies are also committed to provide open fora where important developments in science and technology are discussed, with specific attention to their interconnections. In order to fulfill these tasks, Academies are committed to collaborate—both directly and in international associations—in addressing problems with a major international dimension, in searching for common solutions and in evaluating implications of policy options
