The annual Summit of the Heads of State and Government of the Group of Twenty (G20), comprising leading industrialised countries and emerging economies, will be held on 7 and 8 July 2017 under German Presidency. In addition to issues related to global economic growth and financial market regulation, health will be an important focus of the G20 Summit in Hamburg.

The German G20 Presidency attaches great importance to dialogue with different civil society groups. For the first time, the science and research community is included into the G20 process as “Science20”. Under the leadership of the German National Academy of Sciences Leopoldina, the science academies of the G20 states are developing scientific recommendations on improving global health.

At the Science20 Dialogue Forum on 22 March 2017 in Halle (Salle), the results will be presented by national and international experts and the recommendations will be officially handed over to Chancellor Dr. Angela Merkel by the presidents of the science academies of the G20 states.
