Call for Experts - ISC Global Science-Policy work

The International Science Council (ISC) is calling for expressions of interest in contributing to critical global science-policy work in the multilateral space. The deadline to submit applications for this call is 29 February, 2024.


As the International Science Council's work and impact in the multilateral system continues to grow, the ISC Secretariat will constitute a roster of experts over the coming weeks pertaining to 20 key areas that are prominent on the United Nation's (UN) agenda to be able to provide timely inputs that draw on a wide range of expertise across regions.

The ISC secretariat has identified 20 priority topics on which the ISC will be called upon to provide authoritative inputs in 2024 (including foresight, science diplomacy, global digital cooperation, peace and security and more), which will be critical for the success of events such as the Summit of the Future, the High-Level Political Forum, and the International Conference on Small Island Developing States. Please see the full list of topics at: https://council.science/current/news/expressions-of-interest-global-science-policy-work/.

The ISC will draw on this roster of experts throughout 2024 and beyond to:

- Provide ad-hoc science advice to the UN secretariat and UN Member States

- Prepare high-level briefs for the UN Secretariat and UN Member States

- Develop statements on behalf of the international scientific community

- Provide recommendations of speakers for high-level debates and panels for policy-making audiences
