Call for applications of the AAAS-TWAS Course on Science Diplomacy

The American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), Washington, DC, USA, and The World Academy of Sciences for the advancement of science in developing countries (TWAS), Trieste, Italy, are seeking candidates for the AAAS-TWAS Course on Science Diplomacy to be held from 19 June to 23 June 2023 in person in Trieste, Italy.

The AAAS-TWAS Science Diplomacy training programme was established in 2014 to expose scientists, policymakers, diplomats and other interested stakeholders and institutions to science diplomacy concepts, explore key contemporary international policy issues relating to science, technology, environment and health, and build a skillset to allow for careers at the intersection of science and diplomacy.

To strengthen the connection between scientists and governmental officials, policymakers and diplomats, applications to attend the course are being invited from ‘participant pairs’. Both participants in the participant pair should be living and/or working in the same country. Priority will be given to developing countries.

The applicants in the ‘participant pair’ should share some common interest in the areas of science, technology and innovation. However, it is not necessary that they work or have been working together in the past.
