Becoming a Global Scientist: Science Diplomacy Skills for Early Career Researchers

Saturday, 14 February 2015: 10:30 AM-11:30 AM
Room 212 (San Jose Convention Center)
Today’s scientists must increasingly engage and communicate effectively across borders, cultures, and societal actors. In this workshop, the World Association of Young Scientists (WAYS) and the International Consortium of Research Staff Associations (ICoRSA) – two global organizations connecting and supporting early career scientists – will highlight what strategies can be developed for communicating effectively with a variety of stakeholders at the international level. Specifically, what transferable skills are needed in order to establish scientific cooperation networks, build research capacity, translate scientific messages into policy language and explore the value of social networking – online and offline – in the making of a global scientist? The workshop will be interactive and based on real-world examples to encourage hands-on learning.
