Dear Colleagues,

The Academy of Science of South Africa (ASSAf), The World Academy of Sciences Regional Office for sub-Saharan Africa (TWAS-ROSSA) and the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) are seeking candidates to participate in the inaugural regional training workshop on science diplomacy to be held in South Africa, from 21 to 25 May 2018.

This training workshop is designed for young scientists (below the age of 40) living and working in sub-Saharan Africa and whose research and wider engagement has brought them into the international policy-making arena, as well as policymakers and diplomats interested in some of the central science-based themes that might influence their work, and representatives from NGOs and other sectors working at the science-diplomacy interface. Applications are invited from young scientists (up to the age of 40), as well as scientists and/or government officials, etc., with more experience in the policymaking arena ('science diplomacy ambassadors').

The completed application should be submitted via the online system which is accessible on: http://bit.ly/sciencedipcourse. The deadline for submitting applications is 9 February 2018.

I would greatly appreciate if you could please disseminate the call to contacts on your databases.

Kind regards,


Ms Phyllis Kalele
Senior Liaison Officer
