The Conference, held August 23rd-24th, 2006, provided a forum for eminent experts from around the world to review the ways in which globalization is changing science and technology, and vice-versa, and assess the opportunities that these changes offer. Panelists discussed how science and technology link with, and contribute to, economic and social development in four fundamental areas — knowledge-sharing, trade and technology transfer, society and policy-making, and science and technology education for sustainable development — and how globalization is influencing these processes.
James Collins, Assistant-Director for the Biological Sciences Directorate, National Science Foundation, was among the key speakers who intervened during the conference.
