Science Diplomacy in times of COVID-19

We are thrilled to invite you to our May meeting: “Science Diplomacy in times of COVID-19”. Through this webinar, our aim is to discuss the relevance of science policies and diplomacy, and how we, in our capacity as scientists, can influence the socio-political landscape in times of global crises like this.

We share Dr Imogen R Coe presentation’s abstract:

“Science knows no country, because knowledge belongs to humanity, and is the torch which illuminates the world” This quote, attributed to Louis Pasteur, sums up the nature and power of science diplomacy – to share knowledge and effect positive change that transcends boundaries created by political structures. The challenges associated with overcoming COVID19 can only be effectively met through meaningful science diplomacy. International and immigrant scientists are uniquely positioned to be impactful elements in the global response.”
