From 16-20 May, 2022, the Geneva Coalition on Anticipatory Science and Diplomacy will organize the inaugural Science Diplomacy Week in International Geneva to promote anticipatory Science and Diplomacy as an effective tool for a renewed multilateralism.

INGSA is a partner of the event.

The Science Diplomacy Week will feature an Immersion Program and an Open Forum, for exchange, capacity development and mutual learning between the diplomatic and scientific communities.

Built around interactive workshops, expert dialogues, open lectures, institutional visits and simulation exercises based on the newly introduced GESDA Science Breakthrough Radar, the Immersion Program will provide an unparalleled field visit, learning and networking experience into the Science and Diplomacy ecosystem of International Geneva, bringing together current and future leaders from the diplomatic and scientific communities, as well as from industry, NGOs and Civil Society.

The global call for expressions of interest to participate in the inaugural Immersion Program, to be held 16-20 May 2022 in Geneva, is now open.

Applications are expected from individuals and institutional representatives working at or interested in the interface of science and diplomacy in four focus areas: 1) Advanced artificial intelligence and the quantum revolution, 2) Global health and human augmentation, 3) Climate change, decarbonization and the future of the global commons and 4) Anticipatory science diplomacy tools and new diplomatic methods. Partial and full scholarships will be offered by GESDA to participants on a case-by-case basis.
