New Frontiers in Science Diplomacy – The UK Royal Society Report – 2009

The report is based on the evidence gathered at a two-day meeting on ‘New frontiers in science diplomacy’, which was hosted by the Royal Society from 1 – 2 June 2009, in partnership with the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS).

The report outlines the main conclusions to come out of the two-day meeting. ‘Science diplomacy’ is still a fluid concept that can usefully be applied to the role of science, technology and innovation in three dimensions of policy:

  • informing foreign policy objectives with scientific advice (science in diplomacy);
  • facilitating international science cooperation (diplomacy for science);
  • using science cooperation to improve international relations between countries (science for diplomacy).
