S4D4C Science Diplomacy Survey

The European project “Using science for/in diplomacy for addressing global challenges (S4D4C)” kicked out on January 2018.

The aim of this project is to support current and future European science diplomacy for the benefit of European capacities, EU foreign policy goals and especially the development of solutions for global challenges.

In order to have a better insight of the state of the art, current practices and needs of science diplomacy, S4D4C has put together a survey for science diplomacy professionals.


“Science diplomacy” is understood as a very inclusive and multi-actor discipline so we are interested in the views and experiences of any professional using science and technology in international and diplomatic relations, joint research endeavors, or any other field in which science and technology contribute to addressing global challenges, strengthening international relations or is embedded in the foreign affairs policy of a country or region. In other words, any professional working in the intersection of science and international policy.

This input will be extremely useful for designing the future training activities and identifying what are the strengths and weaknesses of the current science diplomacy professionals.

The completion time for the survey is less than 20 minutes and replies are completely anonymous and confidential. The deadline to submit replies is the 30th of April 2018.
