The final networking meeting will take place in the context of a pandemic which highlights the importance of the initial objectives of S4D4C:
- to enhance the research understanding of the practice of science diplomacy for addressing global challenges,
- to provide policy recommendations to better approach science diplomacy, and
- to build and train a community of science diplomacy practitioners that could provide expertise to tackle global challenges.
This event will address science diplomacy perspectives in view of some of the most palpable global challenges our societies are coping with. It will not only celebrate the end of the S4D4C project, but it will also provide the stage to discuss the legacy of S4D4C and additional outcomes stemming from this European and global discussion around science diplomacy.
For Whom is the Networking Meeting?
In the face of global challenges policy makers have to rely on scientific knowledge and need to connect with policy makers from the rest of the world. For this, they need to be in contact with other relevant actors.
Diplomats have experience in bringing countries together on various topics. Their cultural sensisitivity and expertise in international relations helps connecting policy makers and scientists from all around the world.
Scientists produce knowledge that helps us understand the global challenges of our time. Both to produce and share this knowledge they need to be in contact with diplomats and policy makers.
Science diplomacy relies on multi-disciplinarity and exchange between different ideas and backgrounds. Solving global challenges requires all actors to be involved. So if you are interested and/or support science diplomacy efforts, this event is for you.
