Science Advice to Governments

The 1st international conference on science advice to governments was convened by Sir Peter Gluckman in Auckland, New Zealand, in 2014 at the request of ICSU. This landmark gathering highlighted the common challenges faced in science advisory systems across the globe and often address as well as the issues that have a global dimension. At the end of this conference, there was a clear call for closer collaboration and a continuous dialogue among science advice practitioners. These conclusions resulted in the formation of the INGSA network under the aegis of ICSU.
