Our partner, the University of Padua is announcing the ExPoSTEAM* Diplomacy Spring School 2023 (*Experts and Politicians in Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Mathematics Diplomacy).
The Spring School in Techno-Scientific Diplomacy, organized by the University of Padua in partnership with the University of Roma Three, is a research workshop that aims at creating an experimental Master. Through an innovative and original approach, the Master will allow the participants to understand the nexus among science, diplomacy and decision-making processes, in a world with an expanding technological density that requires techno-scientific diplomatic initiatives in support of quick and adequate responses to growing challenges.
The Spring School will be structured around lectures, simulations of policy briefing, research workshops on current and historical case studies, in-person and online interviews with practitioners and experts in techno-scientific diplomacy, and ad-hoc meetings in preparation of the School’s activities. Students will broaden their understanding of techno-scientific diplomacy and will strengthen their hard and soft skills by putting into practice the theoretical knowledge acquired in the workshops.
Through its interdisciplinary approach, the Spring School aims to create a network of scholars, diplomats and scientists interested in understanding the international context and trained in a complex notion of expertise.
The course will combine an interdisciplinary and hybrid approach.
