S4D4C’s 2nd Networking Meeting (European)

‘Towards a European Science Diplomacy Roadmap’

10 October 2019, Berlin

S4D4C hosts networking events to facilitate effective and efficient interfaces of European science diplomacy actors. The first S4D4C networking meeting was held in Madrid in December 2018. The Madrid event (a global networking meeting) set up the global scene by bringing together an international group of experts and science diplomats, among them national science advisors, science and technology attachés and diplomats. As a result of these fruitful discussions the “Madrid Declaration on Science Diplomacy” was signed by a group of high-level experts who contributed to the conference. This discussion will now be continued in a European networking event in Berlin. It will focus on EU science diplomacy practices and S4D4C will present key results from its work to all relevant actors.

In this event, we will foster a joint discussion about the visions, achievements, challenges and principles of a European science diplomacy. The meeting will address topics such as EU SD priorities, how to open up the ERA to even more international collaboration, the state of affairs of cooperation and communication on science diplomacy in Europe and how to strengthen connections between different stakeholders.

The event aims at identifying Science Diplomacy drivers and barriers as well as recent advances and challenges ahead putting together a set of recommendations for all the relevant stakeholders involved (institutions, governments, civil society, academia and private sector) with the intention of reaching a point of identifying suitable actions for the next 3-5 years.

The language of the meeting is English.
