The American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), Washington DC, USA, and The World Academy of Sciences (TWAS), Trieste, Italy are seeking candidates to participate in the fifth course on science diplomacy to be held in Trieste, Italy, from .

The application deadline is 9th April 2018. Successful candidates will be contacted by mid-May.

This course will expose participants to key contemporary international policy issues relating to science, technology, environment and health, while providing an overview of how technical information has contributed to different policy developments and international structures. Another focus of the course will be a better understanding of, and appreciation for, the roles of governments, international organisations, and the private sector in complex science-based issues, and how different governance structures are developed to address the needs and involvement of these different stakeholders.

The workshop is designed for (1) young scientists (below the age of 40) living and working in developing countries whose research and wider engagement has brought them into the international policy-making arena, (2) policymakers and diplomats interested in some of the central science-based themes that might influence their work, (3) research institution administrators and research funders focused on identifying ways to build international networks, and (4) representatives from NGOs and other sectors working at the science-diplomacy interface. Alumni will join a global network of young leaders and innovators reaching across borders to address societal challenges and become agents of change in their countries and sectors.
