Panel Organized by: Fonds de recherche du Québec

The future of science diplomacy - the use of international scientific collaborations to solve common problems and build mutually beneficial partnerships - lies in the hands of the next generation as they will be the ones undertaking most of its activities in the coming century. Hence, and following the Comité intersectoriel étudiant (CIE)’s recommendation, the Fonds de recherche du Québec (FRQ) launched a pilot fellowship program consisting of a “residency” within the network of Québec government offices abroad and within international organizations. The panel will highlight the next generation’s involvement in science diplomacy in Canada based on concrete examples and informed perspectives of actors in the field.

L’avenir de la diplomatie scientifique, soit l’usage des collaborations scientifiques internationales pour la résolution d’enjeux communs et la construction de partenariats mutuellement bénéfiques, est entre les mains de la nouvelle génération ; Elle entreprendra la majorité des initiatives de diplomatie scientifique de ce siècle. De ce fait, et à la suite d’une recommandation du Comité intersectoriel étudiant (CIÉ), les Fonds de recherche du Québec (FRQ) ont ouvert un programme pilote de stage en résidence dans le réseau des bureaux du Québec à l’étranger et dans les organisations internationales. Ce panel soulignera l’engagement de la relève en diplomatie scientifique au Canada, sur la base d’exemples et de points de vue d’acteurs de terrain.
