The future of EU science diplomacy ambitions: the insights from a policy-maker.

Science diplomacy is more than a phenomenon of politicisation of science and the scientization of politics. Mainly developed in the 2000s, the concept covers three key dimensions: diplomacy at the service of science (diplomacy for science), inversely, science at the service of diplomacy (science for diplomacy), and finally, the scientific stakes and expertise at the heart of geopolitical evolutions, whether of a state, a multilateral or a non-governmental institution (science in diplomacy).

A lecture by Maria Cristina Russo, Director for International Cooperation in Research & Innovation at the European Commission.

Discussion chaired by Stéphanie Balme, Dean of Sciences Po Ungraduate College, Research Professor at the Sciences Po Paris School of International Affairs (PSIA) and Sciences Po Center for International Studies (CERI).
