CEI-Iscte congratulates researcher Cátia Miriam Costa, who has been selected to be part of Working Group 4 “Building capacity for European science diplomacy”, as part of the EU Science Diplomacy Working Groups.

The European Commission has launched a demonstration of interest initiative to create informal working groups made up of researchers from the scientific and diplomatic communities, with the aim of developing potential elements of a future European framework for science diplomacy. The main aim of the working groups is to bring together relevant stakeholders in an innovative format in order to jointly develop recommendations in a process of co-creation.

Each working group (5 in total) will be co-chaired by a scientist and a diplomat and will consist of 25 members (with the exception of the first, WG1, which will have 30 members).

A total of 546 eligible applications were received, of which 244 were female.
