Science faction: What the US election results mean for world science

LIVE WEBCAST / Replay now available

Though not on the ballot papers, the future of American cooperation with the rest of the world in science and technology has been a critical, underlying issue in the US elections. Climate change and the environment, the pandemic and public health, artificial intelligence and privacy - a long list of global challenges would, many experts believe, be tackled more easily if governments encouraged more collaboration on research and innovation. Yet the science agendas of Trump and Biden, particularly when it comes to global cooperation, have been diametrically opposed.

This public, online event offers a quick analysis of the election's impact on international science and technology policy.
