Abstracts Submission: Evaluation Committee

At the end of 2020, S4D4C conference organisation committee called upon delegates who would like to present their work at the “Addressing Global Challenges Together: The Role of Science Diplomacy” meeting taking place from Monday 15th March 2021 to Friday 19th March 2021, to submit an abstract for the Satellite Sessions which will be held from 4:00 pm to 5:30 pm, CET (UTC+1), on the 17th and 18th of March.

Satellite sessions will be run with two different formats: Stakeholders‘ Parallel sessions and Science Diplomacy Community Flash Talks.

Stakeholders‘ Parallel Sessions will be held on 17th March and are directed to high-profile European Union or national government representatives, distinguished science diplomacy practitioners, leading non-state institutions in the field, and so forth. Initially, at least three sessions will be selected to run in parallel. If the number and quality of applications are substantial, additional Stakeholders‘ Parallel Sessions will be made available.

The Science Diplomacy Community Flash Talks will be held on 18th March and are directed to PhD students, postdoctoral researchers, as well as practitioners and policy officers to present their research on science diplomacy or a particular scheme or practice.  Initially, up to nine applicants will be selected. If the number and quality of applications are substantial, we will find ways to accommodate additional participants or slots.

To evaluate the submissions received, we have set up an evaluation committee that will judge the submissions according to the relevance to the overall theme of the meeting, ensuring a diverse participation with a global impact.
