Francesa Giovannini • 20 February 2020

We are looking forward to welcoming you to Vienna at the 2020 Science Diplomacy Symposium. In the next few days we will schedule a conference call with all of you to brief you on the program and on your role at the conference. Meanwhile, I write because I would like to recruit one speaker for the EU sponsored lunch event on March 30.

I am looking for a CYG who has – ideally – a scientific background,  is a strong communicator. I am looking for somebody who would be willing to share their views on how as a scientist encountering the CYG initiative and CTBTO has grown professionally and has become more aware of policy issues.

I am looking for somebody who would be able to address an high level audience of roughly 200 diplomats and academics.
