The German Aerospace Center Project Management Agency (DLR-PT) is building bridges between research, innovation, education and policy.

The department for International Strategies and Instruments within the division “European and international cooperation” is dealing – amongst other things – with SD initiatives and actions on behalf of the Federal Ministry for Education and Research and the European Commission. It gives strategic policy advice, organizes policy making processes, implements funding instruments, builds networks at national, bilateral and international level. Raising awareness on Science Diplomacy and organizing training activities for different stakeholders are part of its priorities.

Within the EU-funded S4D4C project, DLR-PT was work package leader for capacity-building.

DLR-PT chaired the Alliance from July to December 2021 under the theme “Anchoring the Alliance”, convening various round-tables with high-level experts on different aspects of Science Diplomacy in Europe and beyond.
