Science and Innovation Diplomacy School on Global Circulation of Research Data, São Paulo, Brazil, 24 July – 4 August 2023

This year’s São Paulo Innovation and Science Diplomacy School (InnSciDSP) will be focusing on data diplomacy. An innovative initiative of NEWORLD@A consortium-member the University of São Paulo, InnSciDSP is an annual programme that has run since 2019 that provides multidisciplinary training on the intersection of foreign policy and science, technology, and innovation.

Early career scholars (Master, PhD, Postdoc levels) are particularly encouraged to apply. Further information is available on the school’s website which includes a link to the registration form.

The deadline for applications is 28 April 2023.

We are pleased to share InnSciDSP’s call for proposals below:

The Science and Innovation Diplomacy (InnSciD SP) School on Global Circulation of Research Data, funded by the São Paulo School of Advanced Science Programme of FAPESP (, will take place at the University of São Paulo in Brazil from 24 July to 04 August 2023.

This call for proposals aims to select up to 80 researchers for The Science and Innovation Diplomacy (InnSciD SP) School on Global Circulation of Research Data. There are up to 40 places available for international participants and 40 places available for participants from Brazil. The main target group for the school is students enrolled in master’s, doctoral or postdoctoral programmes who are interested in the topics covered by the school. If there are several candidates with similar skills, we will aim at diversifying/balancing the selected students by gender and geographical origin. Selection of participants will be made by members of the InnSciD SP Executive Committee based on information submitted online.

This Advanced School aims to open a discussion on the circulation of research data and measures of science diplomacy that help shape the current global system of data sharing. It will seek to bring together experts from different parts of the world engaged in pioneering transnational collaborative research projects to reconstruct the process by which important historical transitions have taken place and to engage non-Western narratives in the processes of negotiating research data.

The School will fully fund the flights (economy class) and accommodation (standard and shared rooms) for all participants. Students currently receiving a FAPESP scholarship or living in the greater São Paulo area are encouraged to apply but are not eligible for funding. Other costs (visa processing costs, eventual vaccination procedures for travel to Brazil or transportation costs within the city of São Paulo) will not be covered by InnSciD SP.

The selection of students will take into account motivations and consistency with the proposed topic, as expressed in the documents attached to the form.
