Handing Over of the Order of Merit of the Federal Republic of Germany to HRH Princess Sumaya bint El Hassan

On February 6, 2017, in the presence of HRH Prince El Hassan bin Talal and Princess Sarvath El Hassan, Ambassador Birgitta Siefker-Eberle handed over the Order of Merit of the Federal Republic of Germany to HRH Princess Sumaya bint El Hassan.


Princess Sumaya has gained great merit in the intensification of German-Jordanian relations. As President of the Royal Scientific Society (RSS) and Chairwoman of the Board of Trustees of the Princess Sumaya University for Technology she has promoted German-Jordanian cooperation in the areas of education and research like no other figure in Jordan.


Repeatedly, HRH has personally supported both German Archeological Institutes in Jordan, the German Protestant Institute of Archeology, as well as the German Archeological Institute. The RSS, chaired by Princess Sumaya, is the official partner of the Friedrich-Ebert-Foundation (FES) in Amman. This relationship is an important prerequisite for the work of the FES in Jordan. Ever since the early 1980s the RSS and FES have been working closely together.


Furthermore, Princess Sumaya provided temporary facilities at the RSS for the German-Jordanian University (GJU, founded in 2005) before they moved to today’s campus in Madaba in 2012, thereby enabling the GJU to start teaching in 2005.


HRH Princess Sumaya has very close biographical ties with Germany.  During her secondary education she visited Germany a number of times for multiple months to study there and learn German.



The Order of Merit of the Federal Republic of Germany: The Order of Merit was instituted in 1951 by Federal President Theodor Heuss. It is the only honour that may be awarded in all fields of endeavour and is the highest tribute the Federal Republic of Germany can pay to individuals for services to the nation.

 


The Order of Merit may be awarded to Germans as well as foreigners for achievements in the political, economic, social or intellectual realm and for all kinds of outstanding services to the nation in the field of social, charitable or philanthropic work. No pecuniary reward is attached.

World Science Forum 2017 (WSF 2017)

 

Under the patronage of His Majesty King Abdullah II Ibn Al Hussein, the World Science Forum (WSF 2017) will be hosted in the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan, from November 7th to 11th, 2017, under the management of the Royal Scientific Society.


Under the theme of “Science for Peace”, World Science Forum 2017 will present a vision of a world in which science plays an increasingly important role as an enabler of equitable and sustainable development for all people.


 


Science for Peace” marks a recognition of the global nature of the challenges that face all humankind, and underlines our global responsibility to tackle these challenges through science and policy for the benefit of all. The definition of ‘Science for Peace’ will encompass energy, food, water and climate change, the alleviation of poverty and inequality, greater cultural and economic understanding between peoples, and the potential for science and research to create wealth and provide layers of opportunity within all societies.


Over 1,200 scientists, decision-makers from the world of politics and industry, and representatives of civil society and the media will meet at WSF 2017 to share their views on the common challenges facing all humankind, and on how those challenges can be tackled through science and policy for the benefit of all. WSF 2017 calls on scientists, researchers and policymakers from all disciplines and backgrounds to contribute their talents and ingenuity so that we may all build a future that promotes unity and opportunity.


2017 marks the first time that the World Science Forum will beheld in the Arab World or wider Middle East. This presents a wonderful opportunity for WSF 2017 in Jordan to dramatically increase participation by African, Middle Eastern and Asian scientists. WSF 2017 will also highlight the role of science in building and fostering a culture of peace at all levels, and the potential of science to create mechanisms to enable lives enriched by peaceful opportunity.


HRH princess Sumaya bint El Hassan, President of the Royal Scientific Society, extends an invitation to all scientists and science policymakers who stand at the forefront of the debate on the role of science in building a future that promises greater equality, stability, security, and opportunity for all.
