The theme of the 8th Summit is Science without borders: Improving impact by interlinking gender, geographic, disciplinary and educational dimensions. It aims to highlight how science can be a tool to break all kinds of borders: gender, geographic, disciplinary and educational borders. The kind of science able to break these boundaries comes from an environment of diversity and inclusion, key elements to innovation.
