A Satellite events in parallel to the Third International Meeting for Science in Palestine

10-12 January, 2020, at Massachusetts Institute of Technology MIT, USA


The third International Meeting for Science in Palestine will be held at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology MIT, USA, from January 10th through 12th, 2020, organized by the international organisation Scientists for Palestine, and sponsored by Massachusetts Institute of Technology MIT in USA, Arab Astronomical Society, Palestine Academy for Science and Technology, and Bisan Center for Research and Development.

The third international meeting aims to escalate and refine plans toward Scientists for Palestine’s primary objectives of advancing science in Palestine and integrating Palestinian sciences into the international scientific community by: enhancing collaboration between Scientists in Palestine and exile with key partners globally; highlighting Palestinian scientists and scientific development; and devising measurable goals toward these ends. The international meeting will provide space to access information about the challenges and successes of Palestinians practicing and researching science under occupation while also providing concrete opportunities for international scientists to get involved. A working group track will also run to help develop enhanced strategies to identify mechanisms for sustained international collaboration with and elevation of Palestinian scientists.

The meeting will include presentations by Palestinian scientists from both Historic Palestine (Occupied Palestinian Territories and Israel) and Palestinians abroad, as well as other young and established scientists from around the world, and will be joined by prominent scientists including 2018 Chemistry Nobel Prize winner George Smith, MacArthur fellow Astrophysicist Nergis Mavalvala, and renowned Palestinian medic and innovator Dr. Tarek Loubani.
