On the 24th of June, the National Council of Science and Technology of Panama (SENACYT), in collaboration with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the City of Knowledge Foundation, organized a webinar to present the current state and future challenges of Panama’s science diplomacy strategy.
The dialogue was divided in two panels. The first, made up of Anabella Vásquez Fábrega (Director of SENACYT’s International Cooperation Office), Thaís Collado (Ministry of Foreign Affairs) and Jenny Pimentel (Legal Advisor for SENACYT’s International Cooperation Office), answered the questions: What is science diplomacy? Where are we? Where are we going? In the second one, scientists Ivonne Torres (University of Panama), Marta Pulido (S4D4C’s Open Doors Programme grantee) and Rolando Gittens (Institute for Scientific Research and High Technology Services in Panama) talked about their views and experiences in science diplomacy.
