Vienna Statement on Science Diplomacy

The Signatories to this Statement,

Recognising that Science Diplomacy uses scientific collaborations among nations and peoples to address common and shared problems and to build constructive international partnerships to this end;

Acknowledging that international scientific cooperation was crucial in maintaining relations between antagonistic parties during the Cold War and beyond. Now is the time for the world community to boost international scientific cooperation, and in response to current major challenges, inter alia, climate change, the global pandemic, and armed conflict, not to withdraw from such informal diplomacy, but to strengthen it;

Believing that this objective can best be achieved through international co-operation based on the universal values of science and bridge-building across a broad group of relevant stakeholders;

Being convinced that science, technology, and innovation, if wisely directed, can benefit all humankind;

Appreciating that international collaboration between national and international institutions promotes co-operation between nations and is necessary to ensure sustainable development;

Supporting measures for scientific support and provision of infrastructure to address emerging global and regional challenges through cooperation and collaborative work;

Recognising activities of institutions worldwide in the field of science diplomacy, both practicing science diplomacy in their everyday activities, or doing research on science diplomacy, or teaching science diplomacy as a discipline; and

Recalling the Madrid Declaration on Science Diplomacy from 2019 that emphasises the benefits science diplomacy can bring to tackling the global challenges of our time and outlines the principles needed to foster science diplomacy worldwide;

Hereby, resolve to actively collaborate in advancing and implementing the fundamental principles of Science Diplomacy for the benefit of humanity.

The Signatories shall actively work towards ensuring conditions that allow them to fulfil their commitments and mandates to promote (i) freedom and access in the conduct of science; (ii) free and open exchange of scientific ideas and information; (iii) open access to publications, and other knowledge and research findings; (iv) research integrity and societal responsibility of science; and (v) freedom of cooperation across borders for individuals participating in research/scientific activities.

The Signatories reject discrimination, violence, and harassment of any kind, including that based on factors such as religion, ethnic origin, geographical location, language, citizenship, politics, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, disability, or age.

In witness whereof the undersigned have signed and support the objectives of this Vienna Statement on Science Diplomacy.
