An Online Workshop entitled “Increasing Awareness of Science Diplomacy in The Mediterranean” was held by the UfM from 27 to 29 October with the support of CREAF. This training programme was aimed at exploring how regional multi-stakeholder cooperation across the mediterranean can help achieve long-term sustainability and prosperity in the region through science and innovation.
With more than 20 speakers and 100 registered participants across the Mediterranean region, this training showed a strong interest from all stakeholders in deploying Science Diplomacy as a policy tool at the service of regional dialogue.
Participants came from ministries, diplomatic missions, international organisations, higher education institutions, research centres, NGOs, and civil society and the private sector organisations based or operating in the Mediterranean basin.
The Union for the Mediterranean is an intergovernmental institution bringing together the European Union Member States and 15 countries from the Southern and Eastern shores of the Mediterranean to promote dialogue and cooperation.
