TWAS Paolo Budinich Science Diplomacy Lecture on 11 June 2015, Trieste, Italy

TWAS is pleased to announce the Paolo Budinich Science Diplomacy Lecture, “Science Diplomacy: Opportunities and challenges as seen through a small-country lens", by Sir Peter Gluckman. Prof. Gluckman serves as Chief Science Adviser to the Prime Minister of New Zealand, and he is a globally influential adviser on how small nations can engage in science diplomacy to advance their interests and extend their influence on science-related issues.

Time: 11 June 2015 | 10.30
Place: Abdus Salam International Centre for Theoretical Physics
           Leonardo Building, Budinich Lecture Hall

TWAS believes that this lecture will be particularly relevant to Italy and to consular staff based here, and to our region's governmental bodies and educational institutions, which work every day in a busy and vitally important international environment. 

The lecture coincides with a one-week course in Science Diplomacy (8-12 June) co-organized with the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS). This course includes high-level international speakers and will expose some 40 participants – many from developing countries – to key policy issues relating to science, technology, environment and health. Further, the course will provide an overview of how science has contributed to international science policy and structures.
