Welcome to the page of the International Meeting for Science in Palestine, to be held in Cambridge, U.K., from January 5th through 7th, 2018.

This will be our first international gathering to discuss how to implement concrete programs and long term visions to strengthen the growth of science in Palestine and help build ties between the Palestinian and international scientific communities. The target audience is a mix of Palestinian academics and students, and of international scientists committed to advancing these goals.
The poster of the meeting can be downloaded here (pdf).
It will contain talks and strategy sessions on:

  • Current status of science in Palestine.
  • Challenges of doing science under the occupation.
  • Opportunities for international scientists to get involved.
