Global society is in the throes of a digital revolution that has transformed the way in which information and knowledge are acquired, stored, communicated and used. This revolution is distinguished by its speed, its global pervasiveness and its disruptive consequences and poses powerful opportunities and radical challenges both to science and to society to adapt in ways that maximise beneficial and minimise negative outcomes.

Since its first year of operation, the International Science Council has made “data” a scientific priority in both the 2019 – 2021 Action Plan and the 2022 – 2024 Action Plan. In this edition of the ISC knowledge sharing sessions, Megha Sud from the ISC Secretariat will give an overview of “Domain 2: Converging Science and Technology in a Digital Era” in the 2022 – 2024 Action Plan and the related projects within this domain.  Simon Hodson, Executive Director of CODATA (the ISC’s Committee on Data) and David Castle, Chair of the Scientific Committee of the ISC “World Data System (WDS)“ will present the current portfolio of activities and opportunities for collaboration with these ISC affiliated bodies.

All representatives and staff members of ISC Members and affiliated bodies are cordially invited to join us for these sessions, and to extend an invitation to interested colleagues from your wider networks.
