By bringing together experts from the UK and international scientific and foreign policy communities, this two day meeting will examine the role of science as a source of soft power in foreign policy. The first day will discuss various international perspectives on the meaning, value and tools of science diplomacy, as well as identifying barriers to science diplomacy and how they may be overcome. The second day will then examine the role of science in achieving two key foreign policy goals: maintaining international peace and security, and promoting economic and social development and well being.

Organized by: Professor Lorna Casselton FRS (Royal Society), Professor Mohamed Hassan (Academy of Sciences for the Developing World), Dr Raghunath Mashelkar FRS (National Chemical Laboratory), Dr Jim McQuaid FREng (University of Sheffield), Dr Vaughan Turekian (AAAS), Professor Anthony Cheetham FRS (University of Cambridge).
