National Science Week kicks off! Basic Sciences in the Modern World

They are a key driver to sustainable economic development and provide an evidence base for responding to many challenges experienced in our modern world. The National Science Week (NSW) 2022 will focus on “Celebrating the role of basic sciences in the modern world.” This annual event will showcase and raise awareness about science.
