International Science Council has let us know that the call for inputs
invited below will remain (silently) open until 16 October.  Please take
the opportunity to contribute to this important consultation to shape
a priority
action agenda for science
<https://council.science/science-funding/global-call/> that will advance
the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals by 2030.

In the last few months, the COVID-19 pandemic has reminded us of the
interconnected nature of the common and global challenges we face, arising
from growing pressures on the environment, and endangering not only public
health, but also the economy and society as a whole. To minimize the risk
of large-scale shocks in the future, achieving the 2030 Agenda and its 17
Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) has become even more important and

As with the COVID-19 pandemic, mobilizing global science action is
essential if we are to realize the 2030 Agenda. Recognizing this urgency,
science funders and the research community have initiated a “Decade of
Global Sustainability Science Action”
<https://council.science/science-funding> in order to catalyse collective
action for accelerating the impact of science and science funding on the
achievement of the SDGs.

To this end, science funders have asked the International Science Council
(ISC) to convene the insights and ideas of the broader global scientific
community on the critical priorities for science that will support and
enable societies to accomplish the goals by 2030.

It is in this context that the ISC would like to seek your expert
views on priorities
for game-changing action in two related domains:

i. science for sustainability transformations, and

ii. transformations of science systems.

This is a unique opportunity for the international science community to
advise science funders about the support that science needs in order to
maximize its impact on the achievement of the SDGs in the next decade.

By sharing your views via this survey
<https://council.science/science-funding/global-call/> by 16 October 2020,
you will help to shape the international science funding agenda. All
contributions will be mapped and clustered into thematic science missions
for the SDGs and presented to science funders in 2021 with the aim of
shaping global research and research funding priorities for the coming
years as well as of exploring opportunities for strategic collaboration
among funders.
