After successful conferences in Egypt (2017) and South Africa (2018), the third conference will focus on ‘Science Diplomacy for Sustainable Development’. It will be preceded by a training programme on ‘Science diplomacy and science advice’ on 10-11 March 2019. See here for further details and on how to apply to participate.
  • The Women in Science Working Group has started developing an online mentorship programme for young female scientists lead by Ghada Bassioni (Egypt) and Tatiana Martins (Brazil). The mentorship programme will provide young women scientists all over the world with the opportunity to be mentored by GYA members and experienced scholars with the mission to direct, stimulate and coordinate young women scientists in achieving professional and personal success and fulfillment. It will moreover enhance continued education for both female and male participants and contribute to the improvement of the global image of successful women scientists as role models. The group has also developed print materials, including a flyer as well as a calendar with catchy quotes from working group members on Women in   Science, to advertise for the mentorship programme.
