INGSA and the Lithuanian Ministry of Foreign Affairs will be running a 2-day workshop on Security Challenges in the Digital Era: the Role of Science Advice. The workshop will bring together participants from Eastern Europe and the Nordic countries to discuss the role of science advice in security challenges, with a focus on building resilience against disruptive threats – for example nuclear, cyber, hybrid and technological threats.

Science, technology and innovation (STI) are crucial for the achievement of national, regional and international development objectives in a number of domains including public health, natural resource exploitation, education or national security interests. Policy-makers seeking to develop and implement evidence-informed policies increasingly call on scientific advisors. 

The program will encompass two events:

  • Day 1 (4 June 2019) an open conference – Security Challenges in the Digital Era: the Role of Science Advice
  • Day 2 (5 June 2019) by invitations only – discussions on several topics by senior policy makers and scientists + 1/2 case studies.

Places are limited at both, so if you would like to apply for either the open or closed sessions please contact ingsa.vilnius2019@urm.lt for more information.
