Crucial global topics are becoming increasingly dependent on the world’s rapidly changing scientific knowledge and technological capabilities: from global health to digital society, sustainability to development, and beyond. To tackle this growing complexity, countries increasingly seek to engage with international science and technology hubs like Boston, so as to accelerate their ability to innovate and spark collaborative efforts with other nations.

The report 'Science & Diplomacy: How countries interact with the Boston innovation ecosystem' looks at how diplomatic representations use their science and technology arms to conduct activities in the Boston ecosystem. The report was written by DiploFoundation and the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), with the objective of surveying the existing science and technology diplomatic scene in Boston, assessing its current modes of interaction, as well as being an inspiration for other countries to become active in this field.
