The main objective of the networking meetings organised by S4D4C is to bring together different stakeholders with a say in science diplomacy with the aim of raising awareness about its importance and to facilitate open discussions about what needs to be done to improve both the European science diplomacy and those of the EU Member States.
- 1st Global Networking Meeting – Madrid (12/2018)
‘ EU Science Diplomacy beyond 2020’
- 2nd European Networking Meeting – Berlin (10/2019)
‘Towards a European Science Diplomacy Roadmap’
- A third networking meeting (to be organised in 2020) will again be combined with a global networking meeting.
S4D4C also organised two workshops on science diplomacy, designed for scientists, diplomats, policymakers, research institution administrators, representatives from NGOs as well as other applicants who are working at the interface of science, technology and foreign policy and pursue a career in science diplomacy. The interactive events aimed at building the knowledge and skills of participants, and to establish a community around science diplomacy that will grow beyond the workshops.
The first workshop took place in Trieste, Italy, from 21-23 October, 2019 and was hosted by S4D4C partner
TWAS – The World Academy of Sciences.
It was followed by a second workshop taking place in Vienna from 25-27 November, 2019 hosted by S4D4C partner
DA – Vienna School of International Studies.
