The Hungarian Academy of Sciences (MTA) is set to host a leading international conference on European “sustainability and resilience”, starting this Sunday to Wednesday.
According to MTI, the event will touch on the future of Europe and its sustainable development, and will see leading experts in the field descend upon Hungary to participate in the many programs on offer.
More than 300 scientists and industry decision-makers will attend the event, organized by All European Academies (ALLEA) and Academia Europaea (AE) in partnership with the Young Academy of Europe (YAE).
The areas discussed and debated are topical and range from global warming to migration. The theme of “sustainability and resilience” will focus primarily on Europe and “various aspects of Europe’s sustainability and resilience: its heritage, its social system, its health, its economy, its climate, its science and research landscape,” MTA states.
MTA president László Lovász said that science should be one of the unifying forces in a culturally divided Europe. The conference is a step towards scientific organizations gaining much-needed stronger representation, he said.
