This year’s Impact of Science conference will focus on The Transformative Power of Research and brings together science impact professionals to discuss how to evaluate and increase impact of science on our global society. This conference is featuring highly regarded and internationally recognised experts who will be discussing the contribution of their research to the quality of life and well-being. The conference expects over 350 participants from more than 30 countries. The entire event will be online, hosted from South Africa to ensure that everyone has access to the conference, regardless of the obstacles the pandemic has cost to meet in person.
