January 2014, Makassar, Indonesia
For OSM 2014 the main focus was on the nexus between science and society. At the OSM 2014 scientists as well as dignitaries from ministries, academies of science and other stakeholders attended and presented their research and policy.
Academics indicated how their research projects can benefit society and contribute to better policy. In a number of sessions, representatives from business, policy circles, societal organisations and science discussed the opportunities and obstacles in the relationships between their respective spheres.
The OSM 2014 programme consisted of scientific presentations, public disputes, workshops, keynote speeches, laptop presentations and science for policy sessions. Around the two plenary days OSM Master classes on different themes have been organised at several locations in the archipelago.
