Science Diplomats Pitches

InsSciDE’s ’Science Diplomats’ work package will draw a factual and critical map of actions carried out by Science Academies and diplomatic networks, over the long term, regarding the circulation of knowledge and the construction of expertise. Read more here.

The pitches below articulate the subject-matter, background, aims and methodologies of two ’Science Diplomats’ case studies. Two further pitches are forthcoming.

Science Diplomats - all pitches:

InsSciDE Science Diplomats: Pitches








Science Diplomats - individual pitches:

InsSciDE Pitch 3.1 - Science Diplomats

Pitch 3.1 - Emergence and 21st century development of international activities of Academies of Science and Academies of Technology



This pitch outlines how case study 3.1 will look at:
• whether and to what extent the Academies of Sciences became an instrument or a resource for national diplomacies;
• whether they themselves developed a “track-two” diplomacy, of their own, through informal or formal channels (international cooperation and agreements);
• whether they used diplomacy / diplomatic networks to achieve their own agenda.
• how did / do the European Science Academies contribute to the scientific and technological development of Global South countries in connection, or not, with diplomats.

InsSciDE Pitch 3.4 - Science Diplomats

Pitch 3.4 - Relations between national science diplomacies and European science diplomacy





This pitch outlines how case study 3.4 will investigate:
• What is (or should be) the role of research policy in the construction and implementation of the European Union’s (EU) diplomacy?
• What is (or should be) the articulation between the science diplomacies of member states and the science diplomacy of the EU?
