Warsaw Science Diplomacy School

Discover the ’WSDS Chronicles’ below to learn about the sessions and explore outcomes of the 2020 and 2021 editions of InsSciDE’s Warsaw Science Diplomacy School.

The Warsaw Science Diplomacy School (WSDS) was a flagship program of the InsSciDE project, co-organized by seven of its international project partners: the European Academy of Diplomacy (EAD), UiT The Arctic University of Norway, Centre national de la recherche scientifique (CNRS), Swedish Institute of International Affairs (UI), Symlog and UNESCO.

Hosted online 22-26 June 2020 and 21-25 June 2021, the training embodied InsSciDE founding principles of historical connections and interdisciplinary dialogue, while fostering an intimate and constructive environment in a Zoom-intensive week of debate, analysis and fun.

The necessary transformation of WSDS from an in-person experience in Warsaw to a virtual format elevated the program’s reproducibility potential, strengthened the cohort diversity and inspired innovative ways to network and bond online.

Content from both years has been compiled into a Collection of Training Materials, for future teachers and trainers of science diplomacy to draw on, be inspired by or replicate.
