From October 26 to 27, 2018, the International Network for Government Scientific Advice (INGSA) in association with the National Secretariat of Science, Technology and Innovation (SENACYT), the Institute of Scientific Research and High Technology Services of Panama (INDICASAT AIP ) and the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), will hold a workshop in Panama City on “Scientific Advice and the Sustainable Development Goals.” This Workshop is designed for scientists and policy makers living or working in Central America interested in improving their ability to provide scientific advice for decision-making at all levels of government.
The workshop will be made up of a combination of plenary lectures, group discussions and interactive learning tools. In turn, it will explore evidence from the policy interface with a particular focus on the provision of scientific advice for the Sustainable Development Goals. Participants will join a network of Latin American scientific advisory professionals, which serves as a platform to share best practices, and deliberate on the challenges and solutions of the Latin American scientific advisory context.
The profile of the participants should be a combination of mid-career policy makers and tenured scientists. Some young scientists interested in politics will also be included. It is necessary to have a balanced representation between age and gender, from Central American countries such as: Belize, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and Nicaragua. In addition to Colombia, the Dominican Republic and Cuba.
