Sponsored Research Leader Sessions


For the first time, the IUSSP is offering the opportunity for a limited number of organizations working in the population field to organize a 90-minute session as part of the regular scientific programme of the conference. The International Organizing Committee has set aside up to 20 session slots for Sponsored Research Leader Sessions, which are offered to organizations who contribute a minimum of $10,000 which will go to provide travel support to developing country participants to attend the conference.


This is a unique opportunity to highlight research on population issues carried out or supported by your institution to the global community of leading population scholars and policy makers who will be attending the Conference.
