Pathways to a shared science diplomacy for Europe: From InsSciDE to the EU SD Alliance
** Please note: Thursday morning interactive workshops have reached capacity! Only those already registered or invited guests will be exceptionally admitted. If this applies to you, no further action is required in order to attend. **
The morning consists of two sets of parallel workshops on conceptual and practical challenges in science diplomacy. Led by members of InsSciDE and the EU Science Diplomacy Alliance, the sessions explore first what we can learn from science diplomacy as seen today and in the past, and then the challenges and opportunities on the path ahead. Constructive interaction with the InsSciDE project results contributes to envisioning next actions for the Alliance.
Key theoretical concepts for science diplomacy: In search of the 4th dimension
Each group engages with ideas emerging from InsSciDE’s 4½ years of interdisciplinary research linking history, STS, archaeology, and political science, discussing implications for science diplomacy practice and teaching. A group task brings the discussion beyond the classical “science/diplomacy” trilogy to address a fourth dimension or more (diplomacy in science: competing definitions, negotiation and compromises). Insights and suggestions are expected for institutions and networks as well as future research.
Facilitated by Rasmus Bertelsen & Anna Åberg
Instrumental relations or co-shaping of science and diplomacy?
Facilitated by Léonard Laborie & Daniel Gamito-Marques

Science diplomacy in action
Connecting InsSciDE results to the future through the EU SD Alliance, participants conceive future actions in/with/for science diplomacy to fulfill societal, political or scientific objectives. Particular attention is given to the ways and means of communicating science diplomacy.

As an interdisciplinary research project InsSciDE went beyond the standard production of peer-reviewed articles, developing methods to reach a larger audience and create impact. Here we showcase the diversity of our activities and achievements, discussed by our project advisors, summer school alumni and other specialists.

A roundtable of practitioners and specialists explore conceptual and operational framings for science diplomacy. Imagining how science diplomacy can or should progress, they identify practical challenges and weigh in on some of the questions that have emerged as fundamental in the course of InsSciDE’s study.
