Description

The Certificate on Science and Tech Diplomacy offers a unique opportunity to become a specialist in the rapidly evolving field of science, technology and innovation diplomacy. It provides an interdisciplinary training on the relations between science and technology on one side, and diplomacy, policy-making, and global economy on the other side. The objective is to improve the participants’ ability to elaborate synergic solutions to the benefit of their institution, academic or otherwise, their company, or to the general benefit of society. The overall aim is to bridge theory and practice and create a viable network of practitioners with skills on science and technology diplomacy that could address global challenges and function as an interdisciplinary think tank.

In this certificate, you will learn strategies and techniques to skillfully deal with the interdisciplinary and intercultural demands of your work. Expert policy officials, negotiators and faculty together with professionals working in international organizations and non-governmental organizations, think tanks, multi-stakeholder initiatives and business, diplomatic missions and public administration will provide on line and hand-on in presence training.

The fee-based certificate program consists of 15 credits. Five of these credits are taken as module A, which is taught remotely as an on line course on FAU’s digital learning platform. Ten credits are in a hands-on laboratory work on science and tech diplomacy (S&TDip Lab), a course that takes place at the FAU, chair of STGS in Erlangen, Germany.

The Science and Tech Diplomacy Certificate is the first formal educational program for diverse stakeholders in science and technology diplomacy in Germany. We seek partnership with the Federal Ministry of Foreign Affairs and major corporations in the area. Here we will need the support of the presidium. As a university we offer an unused reservoir of intellectual capacity that has the potential to become the next generation of German science diplomats and science policy advisors.
