Science and Technology for Development - L20

Co-organised by: The Centre for Global Studies, The Centre for International Governance Innovation, and United Nations University.

The Maastricht conference is part of a larger project to determine, at the behest of the Canadian Prime Minister, whether a new informal Leaders' meeting (for instance the G20 Finance Ministers group, as opposed to the G8 Summit) could produce results not achievable in any other fora.
