AMMAN — The World Science Forum 2017, which will run through November 11, kicked off Monday under the title “Science for Peace”, the Jordan News Agency, Petra, reported. Inaugurated  in the presence of the Hungarian President János Áder, the forum will see the participation of world-renowned academics, policymakers and experts in the scientific field.

“The forum will give Jordan an opportunity to see the world as a small, open and creative country can offer to the region and the world,” said Princess Sumaya, president of the 2017 World Science Forum and president of the Royal Scientific Society, which is organising the 2017 Forum.

The five-day event, which is the largest scientific event in the region, will take place at the King Hussein Bin Talal Convention Centre at the Dead Sea. It will discuss the use of science in addressing the challenges of growth, stability and world peace. The World Science Forum was first established in Hungary in 2003, in cooperation with UNESCO.
