The workshops are 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 aim at building the knowledge and the capacity skills of participants and seek to establish a community around science diplomacy that will grow beyond the workshops.
