Science + Innovation Diplomacy Symposium
Harvard Kennedy School
Sat., Apr. 15, 2017
HKS’s first ever Science + Innovation Diplomacy Symposium
There is a growing recognition that most foreign policy challenges have in common, whether the refugee crisis, the risk of nuclear proliferation in the Middle East or the challenges of development in sub-Saharan Africa is the critical role of science and innovation in providing solutions for the diplomatic and foreign policy decision makers. Whether sharing of knowledge to spark innovation in emerging markets or validating the implementation of the JCPOA agreement with Iran, scientists and innovators are playing an increasing role in support of problem solving oriented diplomacy.
The Conference will focus on three themes:
• Science for Diplomacy to create common ground in times of political tension
• Innovation Diplomacy between global cities and citizens
• Future careers in Science + Innovation Diplomacy
