A brief history of the World Science Forum
In November 2009, the Hungarian Academy of Sciences will be organizing the fourth World Science Forum in Budapest, in partnership with UNESCO’s Division of Science Policy and Sustainable Development and the European Commission. The theme of the Forum will be a 10-year review of follow-up to the World Conference on Science organized by UNESCO and the International Council for Science (ICSU) in Budapest in 1999.
Read on for a brief history of how the World Conference of Science paved the ground for the establishment of the World Science Forum, a biennial event which aspires to become the ‘Davos of Science’.
