The United Nations Sciences and Technology Organization recently announced 53 prestigious scholars as the first members of the Academy of the United Nations Sciences and Technology Organization (AUNSTO).
The Academy of the United Nations Sciences and Technology Organization (abbreviated as AUNSTO) is an academic wing to the United Nations Sciences and Technology Organization. The intention of the Academy is to unite worldwide scientific and technological talents and to explore revolutionary scientific and technological issues. The objective of the AUNSTO is to establish a global talent pool, highlighting the leading talents and backbones emerging in global scientific and technological innovation, building a high-end talent platform to show scientific and technological innovation, serving industrial improvement and making positive efforts for serving humankind.
There are 20 scientific divisions in the AUNSTO, including life and health, artificial intelligence and electronic technology, network and information engineering, bioengineering, aviation and aerospace, equipment and manufacturing, chemical engineering, metallurgy and materials, geography and oceanography, energy and mining, civil and hydraulic engineering, environmental and ecological engineering, agricultural sciences and technology, engineering management, sciences and technology, future exploration, financial sciences, peace messenger, social sciences and smart city management. The full members (academicians, fellows) of the AUNSTO are composed of scientists and engineers with global reputation. In principle, the Academy requires that the candidates must be already members for a national academy of sciences or a national academy of engineering before becoming a full member of the AUNSTO. The election of new members from the AUNSTO is held once a year, with no more than five members being elected from per division.
The AUNSTO abides by the Charter of the United Nations, carrying out works under the guidance of the local national laws and regulations, and promoting global high-end talent exchanges, scientific and technological innovation and project cooperation, participating in global scientific and technological exchange, discussing global scientific and technologic competition, and promoting in-depth cooperation in general sciences and technology. Regarding the development of global industries, the AUNSTO will conduct in-depth exchanges and docking, promote the transformation of technological achievements and implement the development of projects. The AUNSTO will also promote exchanges and cooperation among scientists, and promote the training of scientific and technological personnel as well.
