TWAS Science Diplomacy Workshop on Sustainable Water Management

August 23 deadline. TWAS will cover 80% of travel costs of young scientists plus full accommodation and visa.

The 4-5-day course will take place in Trieste, Italy, from 30 November to 4 December 2015.

The course will expose participants to some key contemporary international policy issues relating to science diplomacy and sustainable water management, including the use of shared rivers and underground aquifers, cross-border pollution issues, safe drinking water, etc.
Keynote presentations will set the scene and allow participants to develop their own projects in breakout groups. It is likely that there will also be the opportunity to visit a local water purification plant.
Applications are invited from young scientists, policymakers and diplomats, especially from developing countries. We ask you to read the guidelines before submitting your application. Applications can only be accepted via the online form which will be available until midnight (Central European Summer Time) of 23 August 2015.
