The community of scholars focusing on science – technology – society (STS) is meeting in Madrid from July 6-9, 2022 discussing also issues related to science diplomacy in some of the panels. For the list of accepted panels see https://easst2022.org/panelresults.asp
Here a small selection of interesting panels:
Science diplomacy is not new, but its ambition, substance and actual delivery are constantly evolving. This is not least due to shifting paradigms of geopolitics, but also a result of the changing nature of contemporary science: how it is organised, who manages its framing and delivery.
In recent decades, academics and practitioners alike have paid increasing attention to models of innovation whose distinguishing feature is the involvement of end-users and grassroot organizations in participatory processes that occur outside established R&D institutional settings and that, nonetheless, effectively co-produce science, technology and innovation.
We invite papers that address the geography of research collaborations and communities, for a session that aims to take stock of current research on the topic and improve common understanding of the geography of scientific work and its (inter)national relations. This topic is timely, as current societal challenges -such as the inter-related pandemic, biodiversity and climate crises- are global problems which require international collaboration.
