Science Diplomacy: The way forward in addressing global challenges

This Thematic Group, led by DLR, aims at raising awareness among the ENRICH GLOBAL members of the benefit of using science diplomacy approaches for solving global challenges. Therefore, the Thematic Group will discuss potential training activities on science diplomacy which can be offered to all members of ENRICH GLOBAL.

What is science diplomacy? Who are the science diplomacy stakeholders? What are the challenges and opportunities that current societies face which can been tackled by science diplomacy?

These questions are just a few examples of topics that the ENRICH GLOBAL working group intends to cover in its activities. The aim is to build a joint understanding of the power of science diplomacy, to learn how to use it strategically and how to successfully implement actions to solve global challenges – at the interface between policy/diplomacy and science.
