World Science Forum

Published 2011-11-20

STINT and the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), the International Council for Science (ICSU) and other participating organisations at the World Science Forum in Budapest, November 17-19 2011, have adopted the “Declaration of the Budapest World Science Forum 2011 on a New Era of Global Science.”

With regard to internationalisation, the declaration notes that the dominance of global knowledge production by North America, Europe, and Japan has been challenged and a new multi-polar world of science has evolved with new actors in leading research. The accelerating knowledge economies have created new patterns of migration for scientists and increased mobility.

Participating organisations at the World Science Forum recommend the promotion of international cooperation, which is needed in order to reduce knowledge gaps in the world. To avoid repetition and increase the efficiency of research funding, the international scientific community should develop an improved method of identifying research activities and their results.
