After sucessfully completing the course, you will be able to download an offfcial certificate. Important to know as well: The course is 100% free of charge.
Diplomats and scientists looking to enlarge their knowledge in science diplomacy, consolidate their practice and think about career options in the field, as well as science diplomats (e.g. science attachés and science advisors) at the beginning of their career, and students/trainees and the interested public. The course can be a real assest for anyone who wants to have a career in science diplomacy.
