APPEC joined the IYBSSD 2022 as an official partner
The International Year of Basic Sciences for Sustainable Development 2022 was initiated by Michel Spiro, President of IUPAP who proposed that scientists from all the basic disciplines should mobilise, in order to show the importance of their contributions to progress towards the Sustainable Development Goals.
An IYBSSD should 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. Together, researchers from all fields will reach out to the general public and to decision-makers, both public and private, to support the development of the basic sciences, especially in parts of the world where they are still insufficiently developed.
APPEC now joined the IYBSSD as an official partner. All partners advise and decide about the IYBSSD 2022 international program and will contribute to the international organization with their own actions and programs about sustainable development but also by funding and contacts with their members and partners.
