CALL FOR APPLICATIONS - (S4D4C) Workshops

Using Science for/in diplomacy for addressing global challenges (S4D4C)

The Horizon 2020-funded S4D4C project is seeking candidates to participate in two workshops on science diplomacy taking place at The World Academy of Sciences (TWAS) and the Diplomatische Akademie Wien – Vienna School of International Studies (DA).

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.

The first workshop takes place in Trieste, Italy, from 21-23 October 2019 and is hosted by S4D4C partner TWAS – The World Academy of Sciences. It is followed by a second workshop taking place in Vienna from 25-27 November hosted by S4D4C partner DA – Vienna School of International Studies. You can choose to apply for one or for both workshops. According to applicants’ background and experience a selection will be made.
