Science Diplomacy Programme
Science Diplomacy Programme
As an organization advocating the centrality of science and technology for prosperity, human development and social progress for over 20 years among its Member States, COMSATS has long practiced the principles of Science Diplomacy in its conventional dimensions. This has helped raise awareness, facilitated scientific exchanges and allowed international collaborative projects and research under its umbrella. The recent launch of the COMSATS’ Science Diplomacy Programme is a new approach towards addressing needs of scientists, diplomats, journalists and policy-makers to build peace among nations using scientific knowledge and principles for allowing informed decision making.

The programme entails a COMSATS’ Science Ambassador Scheme, a series of lectures on Science contributing to International Diplomacy, Discussion forums on Contemporary Issues affected by science and other capacity building activities in the planes of Science popularization, advocacy and diplomacy.

Currently there are seven Science Ambassadors in different fields:
