27-28 June 2023, COST Association, Brussels, BE
As part of the kick-off process for starting COST Actions, the COST Association offers a dedicated Science for Policy training on how COST Actions can reach the full potential in creating lasting connections with policy stakeholders. In a time when we observe an increasingly important role for science-informed policy advice, COST is keen to provide this targeted training session, as COST Actions are the perfect tool for reaching out to different communities and organisations. As such, we encourage COST Actions to engage with different stakeholders, including policymakers, to increase the potential impact of their results.
Next to this, an additional training on Science Diplomacy will provide COST Actions with an in-depth understanding of the principles and practices of science diplomacy, and its relevance to addressing global (scientific) challenges. It will equip COST Actions with the necessary skills to engage in effective communication and collaboration with diverse stakeholders, including policymakers, diplomats, and the public, in order to promote science-based solutions to pressing global issues.
Registration for these workshops is possible by invitation only. If you are interested in participating, please contact one or both policy officers in charge: Mr Bart Veys for the Science for Policy workshop and Ms Katalin Alföldi for the Science Diplomacy training.
