“This shows that the SweDev network can play a role in coordinating representation to these types of High-Level Conferences on Global Development and thus bridge science and policy,” added Vähämäki.
SweDev members received the opportunity after a request from the Ministry for Foreign Affairs to coordinate participation from researchers at the forum. Future opportunities will only be offered to SweDev members – sign up below to become a member.
