Next week I will attend the Annual Meeting of the World Economic Forum in Davos as co-chair.
It is a great honour to have been chosen for this role and I hope to show the importance of scientific input in global discussions.
I will take this great opportunity to highlight the role of fundamental science in the progress of knowledge, as a driver of innovation to the benefit of society and as a way to foster peaceful collaboration among people from all over the world. I will also emphasise the importance of education in science, technology, engineering and mathematics and of open access to scientific results and developments for all.
Among the discussions and exchanges, I will be taking part in:
- a press conference on 23 Jan at 9.30am CET: http://cern.ch/go/gRx8
- the panel discussion "Creating a shared future in a fractured world" on 23 Jan at 6pm CET: http://cern.ch/go/sBJ7
- the panel discussion "Creating a shared future through education and empowerment" on Jan 25 at 11.50am CEST: http://cern.ch/go/6rjH
