In preparation for the G7 Summit of Heads of State and Government in June 2020, the science academies of the G7 countries and six other countries have prepared joint statements under the leadership of the U.S. National Academy of Sciences. They were submitted to the American G7 Presidency.
This year, the academies are focusing on digital health, global insect decline and biodiversity loss, and the importance of basic research as a driver of scientific progress. In addition, the academies have published an ad-hoc statement on international cooperation in the fight against the COVID 19 pandemic.
