DIPLOMATIC CIRCLE

The Barcelona SciTech Diplomatic Circle is an initiative that aims at becoming the platform to engage, in periodic visits, encounters and policy briefings between the 100+ diplomatic missions and international organizations serving the city and leaders representing academia, research centers and the technology sector which shape the innovation ecosystem of Barcelona.

Heads of missions, counselors, attachés and officers dealing with science, technology and innovation from consulates, embassies and international organizations will have the chance to find out new bonds with Barcelona’s science and tech scene, exchange best practices and connect back to their countries.

GLOBAL COUNCIL

The Global Council is an international advisory body responsible for offering critique, recommendations, and guidance towards the strategic scientific orientation of Barcelona, as well as fostering international cooperation, showcasing our scientific strengths abroad and helping the city to better understand and interpret key global issues.

The Global Council is comprised of internationally acclaimed professionals educated in Barcelona who have made relevant contributions to science and technology. They hold positions of responsibility in academic research institutions or the private sector and play a strategic role in the definition, understanding and response to the main social and economic issues through research and innovation.

The members of the Global Council stand out not only for their scientific excellence and professional experience but also for their leadership and communication skills, entrepreneurial mindset, relational capital, social commitment and global vision.

OPEN EVENT SERIES

The Open Event Series will bring scientist, engineers, innovators, diplomats, international relations practitioners, policymakers, students and other interested professionals together around emerging issues of science and technology diplomacy in a series of bimonthly events.

Talks, conferences and workshops will showcase real cases and best practices of the essential function of science and technology in foreign policy, from building bridges between countries to informing policy, and will engage participants in exploring how the global challenges that societies face require solutions and tools that will come from the complex interaction between the diverse players in science, technology and diplomacy.
