Human Potential and Horizons

Despite society's reliance on science and technology (S&T) to generate solutions to ever-present challenges, the number of young people choosing to study science and take up scientific careers is decreasing. There are several initiatives in place under the Science in Society (SIS) Programme to help stop and even reverse this trend, to inspire greater participation by young people in science, and to encourage long-term scientific careers.

Science also requires the talent, perspectives and insights that come from a diverse and rich research workforce. The SIS Programme also supports initiatives that combat gender prejudices and stereotypes, and promote gender equality in research.
