Quotes from the Third International Meeting for Science in Palestine
"Science is quintessentially a community effort.
Cutting off any part of the community is an injury to science in general"
George Smith - 2018 Nobel prize for Chemistry


As a follow up to the third international meeting for science in Palestine, held at MIT  10-12 January 2020,  and following discussions at MIT, three ”exploratory committees” are composed to follow up on the various discussions and ideas raised at the meeting on the topics of education, research and organization, and the committees began their meetings through Zoom to start implementing the agenda and programs, to support scholars in Palestine; namely: 

  • Education Exploratory Committee
  • Organization Exploratory Committee
  • Research Exploratory Committee

The Palestine Academy and Scientists for Palestine S4P organization in cooperation with all Palestinian Universities, will follow-up with the scholars participating in the conference from inside and outside Palestine, to work on logistical support and to implement the activities and programs proposed by the exploratory committees. 


S4P will work to encourage the use of international resources, to attract the most prominent experts in the world in the topics proposed by each committee and seeking to find possible funding for the initiatives emanating from the committees.
