Celebrating the Role of Science Diplomacy in Tackling Global Challenges


The European Union (EU) and its partners across the ASEAN region affirm the crucial role that science diplomacy plays in creating solutions to the global challenges such as climate change at the EU Research & Innovation Days in ASEAN 2021.

Anchored on the recent United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP26) in Glasgow and in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, this EU’s annual flagship event brings together policymakers, researchers, and the public to discuss and shape the future of research and innovation. It also serves as a platform for innovators, practitioners, and activists to explore opportunities for collaboration and career development with European partners.

This year’s edition has been elevated to a regional event and conducted virtually, capitalising on the more digitally connected world. The seven-week programme (1 November - 14 December) presents expert panel discussions, practical workshops, training sessions, and a series of virtual research laboratory tours, highlighting how research and science communities in Europe and South East Asia can effectively collaborate to tackle the global challenges.
