The panel explores the relationship between science diplomacy and applied research on shared sustainability questions in Germany and the United States. The purpose of the event is to highlight various aspects of ways that science diplomacy plays out in Germany and the United States through cross-national applied research – especially in support of local level sustainability.
The panelists will represent researchers, scientists and practitioners working with networks of local, national, international actors and institutions seeking to resolve global sustainability challenges. The panelists will share their experiences with international applied research projects, priority-setting, agenda development, resource allocation and the barriers or opportunities that they have experienced that affect or determine success.
The objective of this workshop is to illustrate how applied research projects play a crucial role in shaping both the theory and practice of science diplomacy. We seek to enhance comprehension regarding the ways in which transdisciplinary projects contribute to addressing global challenges both presently and in the future.
