This is a past event
Professor Jeff Waage, Director of the London International Development Centre, will speak at a free evening event on his new book, Science and Innovation for Development, co-authored with Sir Gordon Conway of Imperial College London.
The book challenges policymakers worldwide to raise the profile of science, and maximise the benefits of scientific progress for people living in some of the poorest regions of the world.
The event is organised by the recently established Centre for Sustainable International Development at the University of Aberdeen.
For University staff and students there will also be a lunchtime book launch and panel discussion with Professor Waage and other distinguished speakers including new Principal Professor Ian Diamond on 13 May 12.30 - 2pm in Kings Quad F8 on the King's College campus.
