2017 SPD Conference
In February 2017, the University of Arizona hosted a conference entitled “Science Diplomacy and Policy with Focus on the Americas”. The conference brought together a constellation of science policy experts to discuss new pathways for enhancing trust and communication between government officials and STEM innovators. The conference program is here.
Over the course of the three-day conference, participants engaged in question and answer sessions, formal presentations, and breaks for open discussion. After the event, the conference organizers formalized science diplomacy education at the University through two avenues - a lecture series and a graduate-level course.
