Princess Sumaya bint El Hassan of Jordan speaking at the Science and Technology 2017 Conference organised by the CTBTO (26-30 June 2017)

Science is truly invested in human dignity and can be used to improve the quality of people's lives, the president of the Royal Scientific Society of Jordan has said.

Princess Sumaya bint El Hassan of Jordan made the remarks following her keynote address at the Science and Technology Conference 2017 held this week in Vienna, Austria.

The Conference was convened by the Preparatory Commission for the Treaty, widely known as the CTBTO.

For thousands of years, Jordan has had to use innovations to prosper and advance its socio-economic development, said Princess Sumaya.

Responding to a question asked by Veronica Tjokro, she began by sharing the reasons that led her to become a "science broker or enabler".
