Understanding EU Science Diplomacy requires basic knowledge of European institutions and policies, both regarding science and foreign affairs. This presentation provides an overview of EU Science Diplomacy, including activities under the President of the European Commission Ursula von der Leyen and Research Commissioner Mariya Gabriel. It also highlights the process of institutionalization and construction of a narrative that took place during Commissioner Moedas’ mandate between 2015 and 2019, in which one of the authors was directly involved.
