In recent years the topic of science diplomacy is gaining more and more importance, however the concept itself has remained somewhat abstract and would benefit from becoming more hands-on and operational.

BRIDGES unites people who in their jobs work at the coalface of science diplomacy. The aim of the network is to create a community of science diplomacy practitioners in international research organizations.

The network is a very lean operation without fees, legal commitments, or the like.
