Global interest in Science Diplomacy, both as a policy tool and a field of research, has been growing in recent years, also thanks to the support of the European Union and the establishment of the EU Science Diplomacy Alliance in 2021.
The challenges and consequences of climate change such as migrations have brought together governments around the world to advance scientific knowledge and programmatic actions to develop mitigation strategies while promoting sustainable development.
More than 30 delegates from the Ministries of Foreign Affairs and Ministries of Health of CEI Member States gathered in Sofia on 28 November to attend the three-day Health Diplomacy Course on Building health resilience in SEE Region through bridging science, policy and diplomacy to advance the SDG Agenda: Health Unites People.
On the occasion the Italian Research Day in the World, the Italian Embassy in Slovenia, invited the NAMIRS Project partner OGS as a speaker, to discuss cross- border cooperation in the field of research in the North Adriatic.
The gathering - held under the Bulgarian CEI Presidency 2022 - was opened by Nikola Minchev, President of the National Assembly of the Republic of Bulgaria and chaired by Ms. Denitsa Simeonova, Head of the Bulgarian Delegation to the CEI PD.
The project encourages early-career scientists from non-EU CEI Member States in Eastern Europe and the Western Balkans to participate in Programme for Training and Research in Italian Laboratories (TRIL).
