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.

Synchronous meetings will be joined by scientists, including:

  • George Smith a Nobel Prize winner of 2018 in Chemistry
