E-science (C7)


Science, like education, is central to UNESCO’s mandate.  In addressing this role, UNESCO has paid particular attention to the free flow of scientific information, with the aim of enabling researchers and practitioners from all countries to participate in research and innovation and freely access publicly financed research.
