The Bibliotheca Alexandrina (BA), The World Academy of Sciences for the Advancement of Science in Developing Countries’ Arab Regional Partner (TWAS-AREP) and the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) are seeking candidates to participate in the regional workshop on science diplomacy for the Arab Region, that will be held on 17-21 June 2019 in Bibliotheca Alexandrina, Alexandria, Egypt.
This workshop is the second among a series of courses within specific regions, launched by AAAS and TWAS, to better address relevant regional science diplomacy issues.
This workshop is designed for young Arab scientists (below the age of 40) living and working in the Arab Region, whose research and wider engagement have brought them into the international policy-making arena, as well as policymakers and diplomats interested in some of the central science-based themes that might influence their work, in addition to representatives from NGOs and other sectors working at the science-diplomacy interface. Alumni will join a global network of young leaders and innovators reaching across borders to address societal challenges and become agents of change in their countries and sectors.
Special consideration will be given to applications from refugee young Arab scientists who come from countries suffering from war but may be living in other countries.
The completed application should be submitted via the online system which is accessible HERE.
The deadline to apply is March 17, 2019.
