Geneva Science and Diplomacy Anticipator

Geneva Science and Diplomacy Anticipation Summit

About the third GESDA Summit


Anticipation will once again be at the heart of our third Geneva Science and Diplomacy Anticipation Summit, to be held from October 11 to 13.

In 2023, the geopolitical stakes of science and diplomacy remain top of mind for many of us. With a more challenging environment for collaboration, there is an even greater need to create opportunities for joint action towards a common multilateral agenda.

Under GESDA’s vision of “Using the Future to Build the Present,” the third GESDA Summit will cultivate dialogue on critical future opportunities and risks, complementing the third GESDA Science Breakthrough Radar®, which will be released at the event.


What you can expect from this year’s GESDA Summit

  • Anticipatory briefings from the 2023 edition of the GESDA Science Breakthrough Radar®. 
    Sessions include deep dives on Neuro-Augmentation and the Future of Peace and War, as well as topics such as ‘Living Beyond 100’, ‘The Next Fungal Pandemic’, and ‘Secrets of the Deep Sea’.
