The Advanced School on Science and Innovation Diplomacy (InnScid) will have a new edition in 2023, between July 24 and August 4. The event is linked to the program São Paulo School of Advanced Science (ESPCA), being a spin-off of its 2019 edition, funded by the São Paulo Research Foundation (FAPESP).

InnScid will bring together representatives from the private sector, governments, universities, and international organizations who will present theoretical and case studies on innovation and science diplomacy.

The main topics that will be addressed at the event are: scientific diplomacy, innovation diplomacy, scientific data, data through social networks, innovation ecosystem, global dissemination of research data, general circulation of data, academic databases, open science and management data, data economics, and related topics.

The target audience consists of students enrolled in master's, doctoral, or post-doctoral programs with an interest in the topics covered by the School. If there are several candidates with similar skills, the InnScid selection committee will seek to diversify/balance those selected by gender and geographic origin.

Postgraduate students of any nationality and field of knowledge can apply through this online form until May 21. Up to 80 participants will be selected, with 40 vacancies for Brazilians and 40 for foreigners.

The School is co-organized by the Institute of Advanced Studies (IEA) and the Department of Political Science at USP's Faculty of Philosophy, Languages and Literature, and Human Sciences (FFLCH). The activities will take place at the University's main campus in São Paulo.
