안녕하세요, 국제과학위원회(International Science Council, ISC) 아시아-퍼시픽 지역 거점 디렉터로부터 안내받은 몇 가지 내용을 전달해 드립니다.
국제과학위원회(International Science Council, ISC) 는 2018년 국제과학연맹위원회(ICSU)와 국제사회과학위원회(ISSC)의 통합으로 출범되어 현재 116개국 142개 회원기관으로 이루어진 국제 과학계를 대표하는 위원회 입니다. 현재 이 위원회는 UN 회의 및 위원회에 참여하고, 국제 공공 분야의 문제 해결을 위한 과학기술정책 수립 및 국제연구프로그램 운영 등을 수행하고 있습니다.
최근 ISC는 유엔 안건 중요 이슈에 대한 전문가 명부(ISC roster of experts)를 구성하고 있고, 국제 기후 연구프로그램(WCRP)은 공동 과학위원회의 회원을 모집하고 있습니다. 또한 2024년에 개최되는 지속 가능성 연구 및 혁신 컨퍼런스(Sustainability Research and Innovation Congress (SRI) 2024)에 참여할 젊은 연구자들을 위한 장학금을 제공 등의 다양한 활동을 하고 있습니다. 자세한 내용을 아래를 참고해주세요.
1. Call for Experts
As the ISC’s work and impact in the multilateral system continues to grow, we will constitute an ISC roster of experts over the coming weeks on issues that are prominent on the UN agenda. 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 here: https://council.science/current/news/expressions-of-interest-global-science-policy-work/
We, kindly ask you to share this call for expressions of interest with your organization’s membership/fellows/research networks/affiliated scientists etc. and to encourage those who are able and willing to contribute their expertise to science-policy activities on one or more of the 20 topics to add their names to the roster of experts by completing the online form by 29 February
2. Call for WCRP Joint Scientific Committee members
ISC Affiliated Body, the World Climate Research Programme (WCRP), has published a call for members for its Joint Scientific Committee, which is the highest-level steering committee of the WCRP and an inclusive source of leadership for international climate research. The deadline for nominations is 15 March: https://www.wcrp-climate.org/news/wcrp-news/2100-jsc-call-2024
